Another night on business and another Best Western. Check in was great with a friendly greeting and a lovely room on the second floor of this fantastic old building.
The room (6) was good and clean although stifling in the heat (a rare occurance in this country mind) and the fan helped a little. The only thing I'd criticise in the room would be the shower cubicle in the en suite. I've started large diesel generators that were quieter and I suggest the hotel should check its as it should be!
I went down for dinner and had a couple of beers sat in the garden in the sun and still had the luxury of wifi when sat a good 20 metres from the building! I dined in the restaurant for £20 for two delicious courses with great presentation and flavours (not to mention good service).
I slept well (despite the heat) and had a good breakfast before hitting the road for the long drive home. To sum up a fantastic hotel tucked away (but still close to major trunk roads) and I'll definitely be back.
