Booked for me by my employer as slightly cheaper than Holiday Inn (although I think Holiday Inn would have done a deal if asked) booked in advance for B & B and evening meal. On arrival there was no record of my booking it turns out that it was booked with previous manager who had left the day before got that sorted and found they did not now do evening meals "great when its valentines day and every where is busy" I was informed that I was the only one staying there that night 2wonder why". Shown to my downstairs room which was small dark and smelt damp the kettle was furred up and the cups were not clean and there was a large damp patch on the wall in the bathroom. The next morning discovered that the shower did not work very well and leaked more out of the hose than the shower heads there was no shower gel but there was shampoo and body lotion presented on a rusty plate. Some of the bulbs and the extractor fan were not working the power socket was loose on the wall and for some reason the light switches were fitted upside down. There was also a strip of wallpaper at the side of the bed that had peeled off due to the damp and had been sticky taped back down. I reported the shower and was told it would be sorted out but this never happened. The thing is colleages stayed here a year or so ago and it was nice it even looks like the rooms have been up to a reasonable standard of decoration in the recent past just neglected of late. It would seem that this place has changed hands twice since they stayed and things must have slipped. Be sure that I dont think that anyone will be staying there from work in future even though we do have to go to Hemel quite often.
