We have recently returned from a one night stay at The Churchill. We had booked a superior room to have a little extra space.
We were escorted to our room which was in the newer extended part of the building. The size of the room was not unacceptable but was by no means spacious. When entering the room there were no lights at all and the bed was to the left where the room opened up. As a result of the lack of lighting we did not benefit at all from booking a larger room as the extra space was pitch black! We were offered another room but this was very cold so we stayed in our original room.
The room we stayed in had rips in the carpet and there were lots if marks on the walls. The bathroom was generally ok but the shower head in particular was not clean at all. There was no space to store toiletries and the ' fluffy bath sheets' described on the website were nowhere to be seen. Instead there was 1 bath sheet and 1 hand towel in the bathroom ( we later found one extra towel in a storage bag in the wardrobe). There were also tissues in the toilet.
The room overall was very dark even with all of the lights on and the pillows did not fit the ' superior' description of the room.
Overall- very overpriced for a distinctly average and very dark room. Very disappointing for such a good location.
