We stayed here in late June whilst visiting friends and relatives. We normally stay in a Travelodge so this was a nice change and we were looking forward to a good breakfast next morning which was included in the price (£60). We had no complaints about the room which was clean, comfortable and airy. I particularly liked the free wifi and the modern tv. It's a quiet location so we slept well. The bathroom was clean and I'm always pleased to see a bath and shower rather than just a shower. So far so good. We went into the restaurant for breakfast where we were confronted by the waitress, a pale tired-looking wraith who looked as though she should be back home in bed. We were crossed off a list of guests at the bar and sat ourselves down. We were not told what the procedure was for breakfast, it was several minutes before we were asked if we wanted tea or coffee and we did not get our toast until after we'd finished breakfast. Whilst we were eating several other guests came in, like us, not knowing where to sit or what the breakfast arrangements were. We were so concerned about the waitress we asked if she was ok. She informed us she had been up most of the night being sick! We have no wish to blame the waitress as it was patently clear she was too ill to work. She told us she had to come in as there was no one else to cover for her. I have no idea whether or not the management were aware that the waitress was ill, probably not. However, some guests may not have known the waitress was ill and would have put the dilatory service at breakfast down to poor quality staff. We informed the manager before we left, not wishing to get the waitress into trouble but we thought the problem at breakfast should be brought to his attention. It has not put us off the Littleover Lodge and we intend to stay again in the future.
