We booked this hotel because of a last minute closure of the Hotel next door, So it wasnt researched and we were desperate as we were over from South Africa to attend my cousins wedding. We arrived and were welcomed in by Mary and shown to our room, having just spent a fantastic week in London at the Queens Park this place was really a disappointment, the windows are falling apart and were very difficult to open, England was in the grips of a heatwave and we needed air, there was a fan in the room but this was the extent of the air conditioning. we had to prop the windows open as they could not stay open on their own. To top it all the heater was on in the bathroom and I was told it could not be turned off. FANTASTIC IN SUMMER!!. The breakfast was massive and to be honest a waste of good food, half the size portion would be quite sufficient, but it was really tasty. we only really came back to the hotel in the evenings to sleep, although the twins seem to be searly they are actually very nice and they do have planning permission in to change the windows for a new type sash window with a wooden frame. It is a bit like stepping back in time though and could really benefit from a revamp. I know times are tough but a coat of paint goes a long way to brightening a room up.
In saying all this we did enjoy the stay and the beds were clean and comfy, so what more do you want?
One other thing, on the day of the wedding we got back to get ready and were told that our room had not been serviced yet, this didnt actually bother us as we had made our beds and tidied up before we went out but were told a few minutes later that we should leave our room NOW so they could do the service, which I thought a bit rude as we were getting ready and it was 15h30, not like it was in the morning.
