If you are in a need of a launderette in this part of town, you are spoilt for choice between this place and even an older and more outdated place further up the road.
I'm sorry to be negative, but there is little to recommend this place to anyone. The machines haven't been changed since they were installed probably thirty-odd years ago. There are about eight standard load washing machines and four large double load ones. Half of them are usually out of service, going through various stages of disrepair.
Smaller machines will need 3x£1 coin to operate, while the bigger ones need to be fed with 4x£1 coin. You have to be in the know as to which machines to use, or your washing will come out covered with tiny dark spots.
You can dry your clothes too in one of the clothes driers, which can be operated with 20 pence coins. Each coin will give you around four minutes of drying time.
You have an option of doing your laundry yourself, or paying for service laundry, which comes at extra cost.
They advertise dry cleaning too, but it is done at another place, as I've often seen it delivered in a white van, usually at the end of the day.
No need to worry about the right change, as you can exchange your coins and notes for smaller change in the launderette itself.
The staff range for disinterested to downright rude. Doing your laundry here is never a pleasure.
