Stayed for one night on probably the hottest day of the year!
The hotel itself is an old building but well looked after and spotlessly clean,the staff are all very pleasant and professional, the food was good at both dinner and breakfast but wow did I have a problem with my room!
It was on the second floor and had three windows and what can only be described as a turret roof above, the sun had obviously been on the room for most of the day and when I entered it was like walking into a fan assisted oven (obviously I am not blaming the hotel for the weather!).
There was little breeze but that would have made no difference as I could only open one of the three windows anyway and that had to be wedged open with a bit of cardboard.
The bed was very comfortable so I chose to ignore the flock wallpaper that reminded me of my favourite curry house and the temperature that was hotter than any curry served there.
Bad mistake! The room stayed warm and the traffic from the main road outside did not abate until around 23.30 and started again around 04:15 after which time I did not get any sleep due to the wedged open window and the fact that most passing traffic was HGV's so loud it sounded like they were in the room with me!
This review may sound a little harsh as I'm sure if my room had been at the rear of the hotel away from the road and in a cooler room or if the good old British weather had been "normal" for the second week of July then my experience would have been different but I can only review as I find.
