This hotel is in general reasonably laid out and has acceptable public bar, dining room and other public facilities. Only one minor gripe here is that the website i looked at beforehand made no reference to the fitness facilities which were on site. Fitness looked to be a reasonable size with a couple of running machines, weights and mats for floor work.....pity I did not pack my joggers!
Before I go onto room review and a few (really quite minor gripes) it is important to say that the hotel staff were overall very helpful, welcoming, friendly and attentive. Lets face it the people that work in the hotel and their attitude to guests counts for a great deal in making or breaking a stay.
My room on the 3rd floor was a good size - larger than i expected with a good sized wardrobe (not enough hangers), good TV with few channels, good in room wi-fi and comfortable bed.
Now for the "wrinkles".....
The shower was one of these hand held hose over the bath arrangements with unmarked taps. Water temperature was very very hot, hot or cold.....I cracked the temperature puzzle after a few minutes experiment but could just never get used to this shower which could not be fixed onto the wall.
Next wrinkle.....getting a well lit mirror to shave in. Now it might be my eyesight - it probably is mostly to blame - but I would like to have in every 5 star hotel a really well illuminated mirror for shaving. In Best Western the shaving mirror was not in a well lit corner of the bathroom. No disaster but just a little annoying that such a simple design feature has been overlooked.
Final but quite important aspect of the room.....the "desk".....Note to all hotel interior designers.....can we have no glass topped desks ..... optical mice hate them and they slide all over the place.....can we have square, not oval or round desks....we work mostly with paper that has straight edges.....can we have height adjustable chairs and finally can we have larger work areas.....usually we end up there for a few hours each stay.
In this case the desk was OK, the lighting at the desk was good but a larger better desk is always welcome.
I'd stay here again happily but next time pack my trainersand I'd be less critical of the very few minor issues with room design / layout that I noticed first time around.
