    My booking was last minute so our options were severely limited. I was happy to book a “luxury” room as it was described for £105. What we got was anything but Luxury quality. Got to the place and a tattered sign baord anounced this to us. Facilities said there was a private car park, but there was none. The front door was locked on arival with a hand written note instructing me to call a number to gain admittance. The lady that received us was friendly but really didnt know if she was coming or going and got me mixed up with someone else. All sorted we went to our room. The “luxury” room was neat and tidy and smelled of a swimming pool. I imagine thats due to the chemicals that they use in the toilet. To bad they didn’t get all the marks of from the last customer. The room was just big enough to fit the beds and not more. The beds had papper thin mattresses on and i dont think they’ve been changed in the last 10 years. The room was hot and had no aircon or fan to cool it down at all so we had to open the window and let in all the noise from the streets. The Tv is old, poorly tuned with only a few channels available. The mixture of heat and smell from the bathroom made sleep very difficult. Off to breakfast the next morning, there was a gent and a lady, they were both friendly. But at this time my sense of humour had fled. We ordered our breakfast. It was served on a hot plate and that was the only thing good about it. Over all extremely disappoint

    Smell from the kitchen come up to your room

    The bed is really small. Bathroom is clean but carpet should upgrade. My room was on the 3rd floor and smell from the kitchen directly come up to my room every morning. I hate the smell. I am ok with the rest of the flaw since this is a guest house but the smell I cannot tolerate.
