2/10 Poor

Grotty and grubby
Room and especially bathroom was dirty. Hair in the shower, sticky carpet in the room and utensils that felt grubby. Thank goodness we only had one night there - it was one night too many.

6/10 Good

Quiet, good beds including the sofa bed. Run down and needs updating badly. Public areas shabby and unpleasant. No fan in bathroom. Nowhere to place your soap in shower as dish is broken. No rubbish bin in the bathroom. Three teabags for three adults is very mean. Hot water takes forever to come through and is unreliable as suddenly becomes scalding then goes back to reasonable level of heat.
