A weekend trip here saw us and the family venturing to Cardiff, we all booked exactly the same rate room. Whereas one couple had your standard hotel room, we had a slightly oddly shaped room which had a window looking on to the inside of the hotel - with no outside light whatsoever.
Not only this, our window was RIGHT next to the glass elevator shaft - so anyone getting out on our floor could get a good look in to our room at the same time! Needless to say we drew the net part of the curtains, resulting in even less light than before.
I was surprised that we weren't warned about the window/layout of this room, it seemed the equivalent of booking a theatre seat with a limited view...
Otherwise the rest of the room was fairly good, apart from a vent in the bathroom which seemed to spontaneously open on it's own - seemed like they needed to get the handyman in...
As for the hotel, generally it was very clean with a fantastic pool and gym. Breakfast was excellent, with a choice of almost anything you fancy for breakfast! The bar was also nice, if extremely expensive.
The staff were also extremely friendly - apart from one particular barman. I went to order drinks with my partner, requested to charge it to the room and was looked upon with mild contempt as he stated he would need several items of proof that I was staying in the hotel. Perhaps it had something to do with my comfortable converse trainers and jeans wearing attire, in the end I actually had to get my father to provide his signature and original booking form to prove we were staying there!!! Ridiculous. Although - I must point out that the other bar staff were absolutely lovely, it was just this one arrogant/judgemental barman who obviously assumed we couldn't afford to drink there.
