Breakfast in cardboard boxes”

Only complaint was that breakfast was served in room in cardboard boxes and plastic cutlery. Not quite the same. The only reason I booked this hotel was for the full English breakfast. We got up and dressed ready to go down when we received boxes. We were not told this on check in. Check in guy was very friendly but it was unfortunate that he’d just got back from seven months furlough so not his fault. Sign of these awful times. Location was perfect. Rooms were spotless but no plug sockets next to beds

Sold as a **** Hotel....I'd give it **”

The hotel is a blast from the 70s. In need of complete refurbishment. But, as we got a discount, I have no complaints. It was advertised as 4 stars, but 2 stars would be closer to the truth. Location is decent, the staff efficient. Our aircon wasn't working, but they sent someone to fix it. Then just about cool enough to sleep.
