We had arrived for one night stay during a week in London. We left our daughter with my sister and looked forward to one night away... Child free. As we were in the south for a week and my wife was just out of hospital we had to carry a lot of extras. .. Big bags. Check in was fine and we were given room 12. No lift and up many stairs and narrow corridors. As my wife was just out of hospital, I was carrying two suitcases and hand luggage. No offer of assistance despite passing staff and clearly struggling. When we got to the room our hearts sank, you could not swing a cat in it. There was only enough room round the bed to put a bag, ie have to step over bags to get round bed. DONT get room 12. It is described as classic bedroom. Tiny standard would be a better description. View is out to back hedge. Ie no view. Obviously need to get a deluxe or executive room for this. Bathroom also small. Beware when brushing teeth as likely to hit head off glass shelf. Toiletries in shower placed above shoulder height and v diff to put shampoo on hand.. Maybe this is deliberate. Breakfast fine, staff generally courteous and polite. Really , disappointment came from room size. Coffee in room was a tea bag cafetiere, which gives v weak coffee, and only one breakfast tea bag. Plenty exotic teas if that is your bag. Trying to be more upmarket than actually is. Try to get the basics right first. Stay was still good as our evening meal was out at the Fat Duck Restaurant, which is food and service beyond expectation.
