Bijou room?
In fairness, I DID book a “single room” but was not expecting quite such a dearth of available space. The TV was smaller than my computer monitor (remote didn’t work with flat batteries) the ‘wardrobe’ large enough for a few items but nothing Long. Also the rail was so close to the ceiling that hangers would not fit! The bathroom was SO oddly designed with a bath rather than shower stall that the toilet was crammed in to a space slightly larger than the average butt! Certainly anyone ‘of size’ simply would not fit. As it was, the use of toilet paper was an action more found in a circus or Krypton Factor. A contortionist I am not! The in house bar was OK (the restaurant was closed) BUT the thump from the David Guetta playlist was heard in room (luckily C-19 Had the bar close at 10). No on site parking but a bus station pay & display is opposite. All in all, an OK stay for the cost but not sure I’d book a single room again.

Very well laid out for COVID19 and social distancing, clearly taken seriously and well signed and carefully laid out with good disciplines in place. All staff encountered very helpful and friendly. Cant complain at what you get for the price. Would stay again
