We stayed at this hotel as a result of a gamble with last minute secret hotels. This for those of you that dont know is where you pay your money and take a chance. I hadn't done it before and wouldnt again.
We were given a small double at the back of the hotel which was clean and simply furnished. The water provided a luke warm bath and the shower head so close to the wall that I was glad I wasnt any larger as my front would have remained dry.
We decided to have a drink in the bar which lacked any soft furnishings to encourage those to linger. This bar area doubled as the over spill area for breakfast which it more aptly suited being light and airy with a colonial feel with orangery style roof light.
Our deal included a cooked breakfast and we arrived 40 minutes before the end of service. The cold section was lacking and having elected to miss this and go straight for the full English ... doesnt everyone ? I found the provision of half a slice of black pudding most preculiar, had the chef eaten half, was I rationed as my size 14 dress fitted or is that normal ? The bacon had glanced at the pan and looked like my Scottish friend with sunburn ( if you like it cooked best specify ) the hash brown had obviously been hanging around a while, the four button mushrooms tinned ? need I say more .... choose a different breakfast. As for the nights sleep ... the hotel was stifling so we turned the radiator off and opened the window an inch only to be kept awake by what was probably an extractor of sorts going all night.
In saying all this, the staff were polite and there were enough of them. Maybe the other rooms were nicer but this certainly didnt lend itself to romance. Good luck
