Overall, we were a little disappointed with our stay at the Anglesey Arms. One very positive thing we must say firstly is that the standard of the make-over that the hotel has had is superb. All the decor & fittings were of very high quality & sturdy construction. The first thing that surprised us was the size of our double room. It was really only big enough to be a single & there wasn't even room for a bedside table at each side of the bed. Maybe we were unlucky as the chart on our wall showed most of the other bedrooms to be larger but you shouldn't have "unlucky". In complete contrast, the well-appointed bathroom was a lovely size.
Whilst one might expect some noise from beer chillers/extracts when staying at a pub, perhaps again we were "unlucky" with our room as the noise from outside our window was worse than we'd ever experienced before. Luckily, it was winter so we could close the window to keep some of it out but it would have been awful in summer. Looking at the installation the next morning, perhaps the services of a good M&E engineer are required to provide proper noise attenuation to this, admittedly, vital equipment?
At breakfast again, perhaps we were just "unlucky". We went down to breakfast at 9am but no breakfast arrived until ten to ten. The reason was a large party of 16 arriving for breakfast just before us. There was only one girl serving & the poor lass was rushed off her feet. No attempt seemed to have been made by the management to cater for such a large number at breakfast time. Obviously, they may not have been staying at the hotel, in which case perhaps we were just "unlucky"? It has to be said that when the food finally did arrive the quality was very high, except that my requested poached eggs appeared to have been fried & the toast order arrived neither before, during or after the meal. We didn't bother to complain because having waited nearly an hour we didn't want any further delay as we had a long distance to travel.
All the staff we met were most polite & friendly; so, perhaps in our overall experience we were just "unlucky"?
