We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

There was also a medium who visited this close in 1992 and said that one of the rooms contained a little girl ghost who had been abandoned during the plague and who had lost her doll. Since then people who visit bring toys and there is an entire chest full of them. Creepy stuff.
Entering Wales we saw the second of our motorway 'hiccups' in Frank (our pet name for the van) as a loud rattling noise began whilst coming round a round-a-bout. Holding our breath and audibly praying to our little plastic Jesus that our gearbox hadn't packed in after only 600 miles, we pulled over to the hard shoulder. After a tense minute of turning the wheel back and forth whilst PM crawled about underneath ...
