Reasons for trip


We should have listened to the reviews and stayed away – far away!

A noisy pub with rooms, and even more noisy in the street outside until past 4.00 am. Our beds (Room 6) were rock hard, the ceiling was only 6′ high and it went even lower in the tiny shower. My 6′ 1″ partner didn’t really stand a chance. (No pun intended.) There are no lifts and the room was found two floors up a dark and dingy stairway, parts of it with no handrail.

On the other hand our travelling companions had room 4 which had a too-soft king size bed and its window opened over the beer patio at the back so they had smoke drifting in, as well as the drinkers’ chatter, until the wee small hours.

Oh yes! In the morning we found packets of earplugs in with the teabags. Just a thought but it might have helped if they’d told us about those when we arrived.

Cooked breakfast for hubby, fruit and yoghurt for me – well that’s what I’d planned. The bananas were rotten and they had no more. Enough said.

It was so awful it was almost funny but I left there hungry, more tired than when I arrived and two days later I’m still hurting from the hard bed.

On a positive note this place would probably be passable if you were totally deaf, didn’t have a back/hip problem and liked staying up very, very late.

I would say this was one to put down to experience and then move on.
