Heard it was great so got work to book me in for the week but checked out after the first night.
Checked into a Deluxe room on the third floor - the reception did not even offer to take luggage up as I came with luggage, box of files, laptop bag, my hand bag and brolly.
The room was warm and cosy but the decor was a little out of date and scary. I had a room with "trout" as the theme - there was a giant trout fish hanging off the wall which was very creepy, red curtians with trout and cushions with trout. Additionally, old fishing rods on the walls as decor - this was one of the few reasons that I checked out.
That night, the chain on the door was stuck and I was locked in my room - the reception said this has happened before as they need to be re-oiled. So they sent someone up to cut the chain off.
Went to have dinner at the resturant as I heard it was best in town - pumpkin soup was great and serving good portion. The risotto as main took ages to come out and when it did the risotto was undercooked.
Wanted to go to the spa but did not end up as the location was a bit of a hassle.
Bed was comfy and room well heated - bathroom also clean,.
Overall disapointed - did not recommend to my other work mates coming down. They were also going to stay at the coachman but after my experience we have now found Regency Hotel - this is way better!
