Location good but disappointing room
Posted 04-Mar-2017 on Hotels
The room was clean and adequate though very small. The ensuite was modern- no plug in the washbasin, which is wasteful. Bed was comfortable enough. Two pillows, both thick, so one wasn't enough and two was too much. Why don't b&bs copy Premier Inn and have different thicknesses of pillow? Breakfast was good and freshly cooked. My big complaint was that there was no proper lighting in the room, only two wall lights, one of which was too feeble to illuminate anything. Impossible to read in there and as the TV, though equipped with a Skybox, seemed unable to receive any BBC channels and several of the ITV ones, one just had to go to bed early. Just about acceptable, but not a place to spend more than one night in. If I hadn't been redeeming (partly) a free night, I would have been annoyed to pay the full charge. The location is the best thing about it.
