Which clot laid gravel in the hotel car park? Since most suitcases are wheeled, a moment's thought would have told the owner that a gravel surface is a Really Not Very Good Idea.
Apparently, the power showers are a wonder to behold. If you get one. My room didn't, and I've never experienced such a comedic device as the one I did get, and with no bath alternative, either. The lovingly-maintained pink bathroom suite was a reminder that this bit was either built or last refurbished in the 1970s... complete with magnolia walls.
The room and the public areas were dull, poorly-lit, badly-decorated and understaffed. The bar is cheerless and the beer lines need cleaning - avoid the draft Guinness in particular.
In fairness, the bed was warm and comfortable, which was just as well, as the room radiator didn't work at all. (The bathroom one was hotter than Vesuvius, so on a mild night it wasn't a huge problem.)
For the area, and being close to the IWM at Duxford, I guess it's very good value, but with so little local competition, they could consider charging an extra tenner to give the place the TLC it needs to come up to standard. Really, all the faults could be so easily fixed if the will was there. Maybe the re-furbished rooms are better than the one I had - so I hope they press on with the project quickly!More
