6/10 Good

Would not wish to stay more than one night
The room was in the basement and thou had a window, smelled damp and stale, so did the bed and sheets. Our hair and clothes actually became stinky after a night in the bed. The bathroom door was really difficult to close and open without making a loud noise and much effort. Breakfast was decent. Lady owner was easy-going. The price we paid for a room like that was quite atrocious.
