Thankfully short. I arrived late...
Liked: It was not far from the university.
Disliked: The place stank of Jeyes Fluid or some other really strong disinfectant. The bed was awful, but it was clean enough to sleep in, unfortunately, it was too uncomfortable to sleep in. This was the worse hotel I ever stayed in, a really horrible place,

Overall, comfortable and certainly better...
Liked: Friendly, helpful reception. Excellent location for our purposes- off street parking on a busy road and only 5 minutes walk from where we needed to be. Proprietor let us check in very early and go off to our engagement. Able to come and go as we pleased. Clean room, clean towels and linen. Building itself quiet.
Disliked: The building is rather 'tired'. The main road can be busy and with windows open (hot night) noisy at times. The shower is in the room - which was OK except to say the shower head needs replacing. The toilet is shared and across a landing. You get what you pay for. Can't comment on food - had to leave promptly.

I'd rather sleep on the...
Liked: Locality for the work I was doing. Availability at short notice
Disliked: Waiting several minutes before the door being answered. Rude abrupt welcome, or should I say lack of welcome, more a "you can't leave your van there put it on the street and come back". On return after walking 5 minutes from where I managed to park the van being told it was ok to park at the house and I can bring it back. Lead inside to be ignored again as a phone call was more important. Made to sign a visitors book inputting my name and address which was in full view of all other guests. (Data protection breach). Not being showed to the room and having to find it myself. The shared bathroom and toilet had not been cleaned, the single toilet had excrement on the seat. In my room there was toothpaste spit all on the back of the sink. The mattress had not been changed in what could only be 20 years or so, I slept on top of the duvet so as not to feel the very uncomfortable springs. The covers looked as if they hadn't been washed since the last occupant so slept in my clothes. Didn't attempt breakfast because I didn't trust the hygiene enough. Couldn't wait to leave, never again.
