6/10 Good

The guest is always wrong
I was asked whether I had a breakfast token on the first morning at breakfast. I wasn't given one at check-in, so, my response was 'no'. I had to leave my food and follow the person to reception for them to confirm breakfast was included in the room rate. Merely assuming I was at fault has put me off from booking at an A&O again.

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience!
We arrived and had to wait 45 minutes for someone to come and check us in, than we went up to the room to find no sheets in the bed. I went downstairs to let them know and they gave me sheets to do the beds myself… I went back up to do so and when I turned around one of the blankets there was vomit all over it. I went back down again and the reaction was “ that happens sometimes” like it was a normal thing. Than there where also 2 homeless guys coming into the lobby to search through the trash cans and none of the staff said anything. Terrible experience!

As expected
Good stay for the price. Nothing fancy, but room was clean and spacious! Close to the main train station (10 min walk max) but on a busier road so can be loud with the window open. Overall good stay based on price and location!
