We had a room with a walk in shower - this was a huge mistake as it flooded most of the bathroom - this took forever to dry making trips into the bathroom very dangerous on a slippy wet surface - the waste pipe could not cope with the volume of water. We asked about an alternative room - but only available at large additional supplement.
Buffet style english breakfast did not impress, bacon was cold and sausages and eggs overcooked - cooked fresh and waiter served hot would have been far better. Waiter service was available but only if you ordered Kippers etc. We stayed on a DB&B basis but it is the first 4 star hotel we have stayed at that offered almost the same menu each night and at £30 for each evening meal we felt that to simply offer a different roast was not enough of a change when you stay for more than one night.
We were also very annoyed to find that after we returned from a swim in the pool our window was wide open after carefully locking it. The management reply to an earlier review said they had fitted 5 cctv cameras but with 90 rooms over three floors would this really have safeguarded 2 sets of car keys, wifes handbag, wallet, credit cards, satnav and cash? There was a safe in the room but only available at another supplement - not sure why they have safes in the room if the cctv works so well? The new cctv cameras also failed to deter someone from breaking into cars parked right outside the hotel!
