The rooms are large, they all look out over the cricket pitch and this morning we watched nets before checking out. The bed was huge and very comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful and the room was spotlessly clean. The staff were pleasant and helpful. It would have been an excellent apart from three little niggles, which could easily be addressed. The receptionist mentioned when we checked in that we had a recently refurbished room (Tony Richardson - all the rooms are named after cricketers). It was lovely, except for the huge crack in the washbasin which had clearly been there for some time as it was black with grime. This should have been sorted out as soon as it happened. The patio doors looking onto the pitch were locked. I can understand the security aspects of this but the only other windows were two high vents which necessitated someone taller than my 5ft 6 standing on a chair to open. On Saturday night we arrived back to find the barrier to the site down and the security guard away on his rounds. A queue of cars had to wait about ten minutes for him to come back from the far side of the site to let us in. It should be possible for the hotel receptionist to open the barrier as the gate is clearly visible from the reception. That said, we had a good say and we will return. let us hope the washbasin has been replaced by then. People should be aware that the restaurant/coffee shop is not open evenings or weekends, which didn't bother us as there are plenty of places to eat nearby.
