Give La Gaffe a Miss
  2 / 10
We stayed here in January 2009 and they said they only had two options available a twin for £95 or four poster for £125 so it's not a cheap deal. We were just visiting friends so decided against the four-poster room as all the rooms were very old fashioned looking and not worth paying the extra. What we got did not even resemble the website and frankly I wouldn't put a dog in the room. The furniture was tatty 1970s G plan that looked secondhand. The 'wardrobe' with half a dozen mismatching plastic hangars couldn't fit a long dress or coat. There were no valances on the beds. The headboards were fake teak. The walls were dusty and depressing and ugly pictures were not even straight. The double-glazed windows did not fit and so we had to put up with traffic noise all night. The en-suite was tiny and in despearate need of an upgrade. Breakfast was only average and for an Italian restaurant the coffee was poor. A good location and not much competition allows these people to get away with this but what motivates them to let out a substandard room when there are others available is only one thing - greed. If you had put us in another room at no cost to yourselves this could have been a very different review.
