Not so Great Expectations
Customer service was basic and all though breakfast was included the staff did not seem to take interest in the details of what you would like. For example you were asked if you wanted a full english once replied with yes they turned and walked away. There was no mention of what you get. They also advise that the breakfast is cooked to order this is not the case. 5 minutes after requesting breakfst it was ready. The toast was cold etc. The bathroom needed attention, the toilet was a liitle loose, the sink plug was detatched and the shower controlls were broken and the temperature didnt seem to go higher than warm. The kettle was full of limescale which was flaked off and floating in the water that seemed as though it had been there a short while. Not very pleasing especially on top of a very basic room, for the money I would say go else where. Parking is not available on the premises and I had to park in the shopping centre which added over £30 to my bill taking the total to £114. On a poitive note, breakfast was included (even though basic and not as advertised).

comfortable single room
Reception staff very friendly. Single room was cozy, heater and iron provided. Be aware that walls are paper thin and there is music played next door until around 11 so bring earplugs.

As expected from inner-city inn style hotel
Generally I was pleased with the Great Expectations. The service from staff both at the bar and at reception was great; friendly and polite throughout. My room (5 on 1st floor) was ok. The Shower mixer tab was damaged, and the soap stand had old soap scum on it so not been cleaned. The curtains were a cross between ye olde chinz and sun bleach faded. The TV remote was not for the TV in my room so couldnt change the channel from news 24. As I was only one floor above the bar with live "music" it was quite loud but not too loud not to be able to sleep. Inclusive breakfast was OK. It is served in the bar, but was clean and laid out in preparation for guests arriving. There was a selection of Kellog's cereals and juices/coffee on the counter to help yourself. Cooked breakfast including danish and full english was also available, but you had to ask as no menu was available. I ordered poached egg and sausage with toast. I got a fried egg and sausage toasted sandwich but I just broke it down again to its components for consumption. It's not what I asked for but was nice enough. I would stay here again as the price outweighed any of the cons detailed above.
