proximity to town
Appalling, it should NOT be described as a guest house, it is a squalid hovel. The shower was cold, the sink hot tap didn't provide even a trickle of water, either hot or cold. There were no towels and no soap in the shower.
I had to track down a member of staff at another house in the street to ask for towels so i could have a shower after my very long and tiring journey shower. The ember of staff said they had none; all he could find were a couple of grubby old hand towels which he found on the floor of an under stairs cupboard and they stank of what i really hope was onions.
I am not impressed, it was probably the worst place i have ever stayed in.
