We arrived at the Clarendon at 2 pm tobe greeted by staff with limited understanding of English and the English culture. We were told that we couldn't stay at the Clarendon because of a technical problem - no further explanation offered. The lady said we are moving you to a five star hotel it is very nice with a spa. We asked why they hadn't called us earlier to tell us so that we could have brought costumes with us. She told us not to worry we could probably borrow costumes - hmm!
We chose this hotel because of the location as I was on business the following day 100 metres away. However we agreed to move and a taxi was called. When we got to the Grange the taxi driver asked us for £10 we told him the hotel would be paying but he had not been told. He had to go into the hotel and request the money off the receptionist. Could have been unpleasant me thinks. Negatives out the way lets talk about the Grange.
Hotel and location - excellent. Room very good, breakfast superb. Couldn't keep curtains open if you wanted privacy as we were facing an office block only about 10 metres away. The only downside was the bed - IT WAS ROCK HARD !! We hardly slept. Who likes the mattress rock hard??
Overall we had a good stay and the location is great and it's a really nice hotel.
