I had read the other reviews before making a reservation to stay here and I also looked at a number of other hotels in the area.
I chose the Lamp Post Inn because I wanted to keep the cost of our trip as low as possible. I felt that it would provide the absolute basics required when you need somewhere to stay, at a good price, and I was not disappointed.
Yes, the rooms could do with a bit of a face-lift, but making them prettier or more luxurious would quite rightly increase the price of staying here. Our room was clean, there was basic housekeeping each day during our stay, and there was a TV with plenty more channels available than you get in other hotels. We also made use of the fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The complimentary breakfast was a nice touch, with tea, coffee, cereal, bagels and muffins available. Again, this is something you don't always get included in the price of your room.
I would have liked it if the towels had been bigger - but for this price I will happily bring my own if I stay here again.
We did not need to go to reception except at the check-in/-out stage but on both occasions the receptionist was very polite and friendly.
Overall, I was very happy with what we got for our money.
