Okay for a night
Hotel is a bit dated, room was very very small, bed okay, pillow's too hard. View out the window was a derelict building and grounds. Dinner menu wasn't good. Didn't try breakfast. Staff member at reception was friendly and polite.

Missed opportunity to impress
Room was clean, however bedside light wasnt working. Request made for walk in shower due to mobility issues but wasn't available. No milk sachets in the hotel for the complimentary tea/coffee. Was advised that there were 5 steps, however there were at least 15 steps to the room which due mobility issues presented hazard. Breakfast was meant to be included however breakfast consisted of a packet of sandwiches, a bottle of juice, crisps and a packet of biscuits in a brown bag. Overall, disappointing.
