Booked online, looked good value and close to where we were attending a wedding, thought it would be okay for crashing just for one night. Room a little cramped with shower/toilet/sink crammed into a cupboard space? But still adequate, fresh clean towels, soap and toilet rolls
Kettle with tea, milk and sugar on table near bed, very welcoming.
Bed was clean and comfortable with two night lights on headboard.
Small tv on wall was ok .
Good size wardrobe and bedside cabinets, set of drawers too.
Reluctant to use toilet as the door was situated right at the base of the bed and embarrassing to use when another person in room.....
Staff were very friendly and welcoming as we arrived, and very helpful too, especially the lady.
I got Wi Fi passcode, but it never worked at all .....
Returned after the event and settled down, but was repeatedly woken up by people running along corridor, talking loudly, then later heard the sound of drunken women echoing up the marble staircase. Very annoying, but this was nothing to what was to come, every 15 minutes or so the front door would slam loudly , reverberating and almost making me jump out of my skin. This went on all night and at 7am I gave up the ghost of trying to get some sleep, exhausted, we both got washed dressed and decided to go to a cafe for strong coffee before getting ready to pack, we had to vacate by 11am.
We noticed a large sign on the front door asking residents not to slam the door, but I wondered if the slamming was by residents or outsiders gaining access?
We were generally pleased by the price and location and can’t complain really about the room and friendly staff.
On the way out somebody was in the communal lounge lying in the dark fast asleep snoring their head off.
I would return if perhaps they could fit a spring loaded front door to silently shut and lock,
