My third stay at this Hotel . The usual lack of parking space and same tiny passenger lift .
Room 114 was alright but the water ran cold for fifteen minutes before warming up at the first attempt . Thereafter it was alright with a very efficient shower . The radiator was clapped out and producing about one fifth the heat it should have been producing. I complained about this but nothing was done . The room was warm so it was not a big problem . The rad in the bathroom was also tepid and could not be adjusted along with a v cool towel rail . Not good enough this lack of control of room temperature . The food was very good on each of the three nights except for the deserts which were better on paper than on the plate . The breakfast buffet had a giant bowl of prunes , peaches, and slices of melon . No grapefruit , fruitsalad or orange and some very downmarket baked beans . The free view was spasmodic and a lot of channels were unavailable some of the time .Still for £69 DBB per night it was good value over all .
