I came here for a work trip for 5 nights, initially the lady who checked us in was really lovely. The actual room itself was decent, the bathroom was clean but the flush did not work properly, we had to push it around 5 times for it to actually work and this happened each time we used it. On the 1st day we noticed a few ants in the room but nothing major as the week went on we started to notice more ants which we would then see in the bed it made the stay quite uncomfortable. We were provided with 2 mugs and 2 drinking cups - as you can imagine this is quite unhygienic to use the same for 5 days and thought we would’ve been provided with more the next day. When I went to ask for more mugs and cups a different lady at the pub told me “well can’t you just use the ones you were given” to which I replied no we’re here for 5 days and we’ve already used these for 2 days. She said “well just rinse it and use it again” first of all I don’t know what kind of dump she is used to staying in but there is no way that is an acceptable thing to tell a guest. Rinsing it does not get rid of the bacteria building up for days from using the same cup. I said to her I’m not going to be using the same mug as rinsing it doesn’t get rid of the stains or bacteria buildup. She said “well I don’t know anything about any mugs I’ll give you 2 cups I guess” in a foul tone. I was so disappointed with this and safe to say I wont be saying here again. The location however was brilliant close to town centre
