When we arrived here and drove past looking for a parking space I must admit my heart sank a little at the exterior appearance. We entered reception (actually a very "rustic" pub) through a haze of cigarette smoke in the doorway. Whilst booking in we were told the rooms were actually in their sister hotel just down the road a bit, now this immediately made me think bait and switch, i.e advertise somewhere that looks nice then dump people in something resembling run down council flats, I wasn't too far wrong. The exterior was let's say, less than appealing, the stairway up to the rooms was very narrow and could best be described as dingy. However the room seemed okay, clean, with the tiniest TV screen I have ever seen mounted to the wall. The view from the window was of a wall a few feet away. We headed out for dinner and, finding a lack of anywhere that looked appealing nearby ate in the restaurant, this was okay, typical pub grub.
Now, this is where it went downhill. I noticed when we were taken to our rooms it looked like there was a private flat on the ground floor with our rooms being on the first floor. I can only assume my room was directly above this private flat (and without wishing to stereotype I would imagine this is very low rent accommodation) . Anyway, I was kept awake until around 4am by the sounds of arguing and door slamming, as this was a business trip (sadly we don't get to book our own rooms) and having to be up at 7.30 this was absolutely not satisfactory.
