    Hotel is very near to all attractions so very convenient. However, the single rooms are too small. There was little space to move between bed and dressing table as the chair obstructed movement and there was nowhere comfortable to sit to relax in the room during inclement weather. I have slight mobility issues and found stepping out of the shower difficult due to a steep step down to the floor and no safety handle to hold on to. I was told one could not be fitted. I asked to be moved to another room but the 2 rooms I was shown were worse with low, sloped ceilings restricting space. I solved the problem myself by requesting a pile of towels to put on floor in front of the shower to reduce the step down. The single beds are too small and fixed to the wall so the duvet could not be put down one side of the bed which mean it kept falling off the bed in the night and it was too small and barely covered the bed. 1 of the alternative rooms I was offered had the bed pushed into a sloped alcove right under the window so had limited head room. 2 of the the drawers in the dressing table would not take any weight. When I put clothes in them they collapsed so I had to remove extra bedding from the shelf in the wardrobe and use that space instead. Hanging space in wardrobe not high enough to hang long dresses and not enough hangers provided.

    Cleanliness of room fair but the carpet was not very clean and was not vacuumed at all while I was there. Public areas were fairly clean but I did notice that the toilet seats in the reception area were not very clean on the one occasion I popped in so I used the one in the bar area which were better.

    Reception staff were generally very helpful and friendly but were reluctant to offer me a better room than the ones shown when I asked to move. They would not act without authority from the manager when I suggested they move me to a double room when I complained about the shower step and the safety concerns. I got the impression he would not have approved my suggestion.

    I only ate breakfast in the hotel. There was little variety. More alternatives to the basic fry up would be nice for the price charged for bed and breakfast, e.g alternatives to toast such as croissants or bagels for people like me who don't eat bread or cereals.

    I would not stay there again.
