“Very smart - but needs to go back to basics”
Reviewed October 14, 2007

Stayed just one night for a nearby function. Room (3) was very small so glad not to be there longer. The rooms and pub are very smart and modern, but in the refurbishment some basics seem to have been overlooked. When paying £80 per night I don't expect to have to make a cup of tea on the floor, or drink water out of tea cups - no glasses. We were pressured into agreeing to Sunday breakfast at 9:15, even though the room info and website say breakfast till 10:00 at weekends. Cooked breakfast was excellent - except for hoover accompaniment and sliced white bread toast (unforgiveable at this price and hype!).
Main problem though was lack of basic customer service - a general feeling of lack of interest in customers and a feeling that we were putting them out slightly by our presence!

  • Liked — smart and modern
  • Disliked — lacking in customer service
  • Stayed October 2007, traveled as a couple
