We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. Our double room (No 10) turned out to have 2 single beds but as there were no others available we pushed the beds together and made do. The bed was made up as a double for our second night but the duvet used was obviously for a standard double so was far too small. Also, the walls are very thin so we had to put up with our neighbour's snoring, toilet flushing and phone conversations.
Our room had a lovely view of the park but the curtains were difficult to close because the tv was fixed to the wall directly above the rail. As a result the curtains were falling off. The room was basic but clean and functional. There was no shade on the ceiling light, only one bedside table and light.
The bathroom had a bath (plentiful hot water) with an overhead shower (good water pressure). My only concern was that while using the shower the water temperature suddenly changed and I was forced to move quickly to avoid being scalded - health and safety !!!
There was no plug for the washbasin and the toilet seat was broken but these were soon sorted out by the friendly staff.
We ate in the bar the first night but the food quality was disappointing. Our "full English" the next morning was also a bit of a let down. The second morning we asked for scrambled egg and bacon which was freshly cooked and much tastier.
We got a great deal through Booking.com but wouldn't choose to stay here again.
