We booked this for an overnight stop on a longer journey and as we’d always wanted to spend longer nearer Killington Lake and its view.
The evening receptionist was very friendly and helpful, though it would have been useful to know how to access the free Wi-Fi before getting into our room, and having to go back along the long corridor and upstairs to be given the information.
We were allocated a quiet room with lake view as we had requested, but, having arrived late, the longish walk back to Reception put us off going as we sequentially discovered things missing in the room.
There appeard to be few guests staying.
Parking was stated as being free on the internet booking, but we noticed next day in the car park that fees should have been paid for staying more than 2 hours....Luckily we were not fined.
As others have written, the place had a tired feeling, and housekeeping in our room lax. The sofa bed fabric was very faded from daylight. As this had been a Premier Inn and given some reviews about large beds, mistakenly we had expected the bed to be bigger and firmer but it was a standard size and soft and wobbly, leading to a poor night’s sleep. Toilet paper was of poor quality and rather minimal in quantity. Both gel dispensers were empty and a Carex hand wash was available in a bottle designed presumably for a dispenser as it was difficult to use on its own, and it was far too harsh to use as shower and shampoo gel. Luckily we had brought our own shampoo and used it also for our shower wash. The bath tap had a small leak. The TV had the 5 main channels but the remote control only worked when standing to the right of the TV! The complimentary drinks tray did have Fairtrade sugar (well done) but only tea, no coffee.
The view next morning was lovely even under lowering wet skies, and we enjoyed it especially over breakfast next door in the service area.
We gave this average for the helpful receptionist and the view, but otherwise might have opted for poor.
