    The state of the front door alone was enough for me to question my choice and when the door opened I could see the carpet in the hall and stairs was dirty. The room we booked was en suite and it was a good size but furnished from a yard sale with nothing matching, filing cabinets for bedside tables so you caught your legs getting in and out of the (hard) bed. The bathroom wasn't bad, clean, as was the bed but the towels had evidence of the last user's hair. Arguably the worst aspect of the room was the curtains, which were hanging off the rails. Good touches were a fridge in room and we found two fans in the cupboard, large TV and plenty of channels although the TV screen wasn't the best, lines and colours wandering up and down.
