Stayed here before with no complaints. However, this time we had a room with no window but a dome skylight that did not open, too high anyway.
It was very hot due to the heatwave and we stuck it for two nights with no sleep and more water in the bed than the bath due to the heat that was in the room.
I went down on the 3rd morning to explain the situation and was greeted by an elderly receptionist who told me after I explained said that we could not change as the hotel, all 450plus rooms. I asked if we could borrow a fan and she said, no, against the rules and they did not have one anyway.
I got so wound up thinking of the heat I said to my wife I would rather sleep in the car. However, she said ask again and this time there was a lovely young lady on reception when we returned who said they had empty rooms available and she would change us no problem. She gave us a room with 3 big windows, although only one opened it was enough to be cool and get some sleep. That is all it took to save me from the car. So I would say, request a room with a window, cos they have some without, although I guess the winter it would be fine. It is a good place to stay though, and I guess we will again.
