If you want a peaceful night, don't accept a room above the kitchen. All night long there was a continuous pervading noise as if coming from an industrial air conditioning unit on the kitchen roof right below my window. Spoke to reception and they promised it would be switched off at 10pm - It wasn't! This was one of the hottest days of the year but I had to close the window for some refuge from the noise, and then of course the room temperature and humidly made sleep impossible,
The room was Spartan but clean, and all the bells and whistles worked. It was a good job there was one chair where I could sit to put on my socks. You couldn't do this sitting on the edge of the bed because it was nearly 2 feet high!
Had a meal in the attached Brewers Fayre. The place was clean and the staff were efficient, but the food!!! I made the mistake of inadvertently ordering the basic fish and chips instead of Cod. Goodness knows what type of fish I got, but is looked and tasted as ’re-constituted' fish, as they say. The chips were warm. That's all I can say good about that. My good wife suffered in silence, as she does.
The cost of the room for the night was £80. Places like this were a godsend years ago when weary travellers were grateful for a bed at competitive costs. The unique selling point of places like this being sited near major roads and interchanges is wearing a bit thin in this day of the internet and smart phones. In hindsight, we could have been better fed and bedded in a choice of nearby quality hotels at little more cost than I paid here.
