As someone who has always desired to stay at the Whipper, I wanted to take my partner there for a romantic weekend. Although I understand other reviews who comment on the car parking , we found that on a market day, it is what it is!. We checked into our room, met some friends for coffee, and returned with the intention of showering. Firstly, there was no shower, there was a shower attachment, but no curtain! When we spoke to reception staff(Jodie, who was delightful) she explained that the rooms on our floor, didn't have a shower, which, although somewhat odd, we could cope with. My other half had an adventure when it came to having a shave, he had to move the mirror in the bathroom, which when I went to freshen up, gave a very unflattering view to apply make up! The bed was uncomfortable, the carpet was shabby and dirty, the whole place needs updating, and without doubt, the staff are the best selling point for this establishment!! Would love to go back when the hotel lives up to the staffs high standards.
