6/10 Good

One night break away in Bury St. Edmunds.
Staff were really good and hard working, the breakfast was very nice and had a good choice. However, the room considering it was described as a Superior Double room was rather shabby as the edging to the bedside tables and main desk / drawer unit in the room had completely peeled off leaving raw chipboard and could have looked a lot better. Bedroom windows were very large sash windows and the windows could not open due to the sash ropes being non existent which lead to the room being rather humid and stuffy. Had to use the waste bin to keep the window open for a while for some fresh air. Room with a Garden View. the view to the garden was very restricted by roofs.
