2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The guest house is close to the town centre. However the member of staff on reception looked bored and beyond giving us a key and directions to the room did not say much else. The room and bathroom was clean. One of the bedsheets had want looked like a few dribbles of coffee on it from a previous occupant. It might have been stain-even so not good. There is no parking you have to use on street parking. Worse of all we were told the hotel provided a free breakfast when booking. This was a reason for choosing this one over another one. I received an email a few days before travelling advising that due to COVID restrictions there would be no breakfast. I find this difficult to believe they hotel management was not aware of this prior to me booking. I had booked a few weeks before travelling and COVID restrictions are in fact lessening at present not increasing. Overall a very disappointing hotel.

Avoid like the plague
On arrival there was nobody at reception and there was a handwritten note to call for attention. Met with a older man who started to have issues with the hotel wi-fi and started muttering to himself. The room was ok but later discovered we couldn’t open the window .It started to feel like a sauna in the room. There was no teaspoons or toilet roll in the room. Also told that the hotel doesn’t do breakfast despite this being advertised. Notice on the wall downstairs stating that the hotel was being “renovated and a work in progress”. When we mentioned to one of the locals where we we’re staying, they laughed and said the the hotel was formerly a place for ex-offenders and the homeless! We left the hotel a day early as we didn’t want to staying there an extra night .
