As my birthday treat, myself and my sister booked 2 nights at Lea House.On arrival, the greeting I experienced was unbelievable! Caroline opened the door, I told her who I was, she told me to park the car "over there" as she was watching the Tennis, and shut the door! When she finally decided to let us in, we were ushered into the dining room and asked to choose breakfast and tea or coffee for the morning.We hadn't even seen the room!
At breakfast, I accidently spilt a cup of tea, over the table. I tried to mop as much up with napkins, and then went to inform Caroline. She asked me "how on earth had I done that" perhaps asking me had I scalded myself would of been the question to ask??!! I felt like a two tear old, and was very embarrased,as there was another family at the breakfast table.When she went back to the kitchen, I told my sister I was not staying another night and she agreed with me. I finished the breakfast (so tiny it wouldn't fill a baby bird) and went upstairs to pack.Caroline and another person were in the room.(we hadn't been given a key to lock the room, just 1 front door key) I was furious, and told her we were not staying any longer, that she was very patronising and rude, and that I had travelled all over the world,and had never experienced anything like it,anywhere! As she left the room, her passing comment was "we were in a bad mood when we arrived"
