Stayed here for 1 night on a business trip. Thank goodness it was only for 1 night! My room was at the back of the hotel facing the golf course – nice view. All seemed well until I entered my room. The smell was vile – it felt like the room hadn’t seen fresh air for at least 20 years! There were no proper windows – just two skylights. The bathroom was dated to say the least. One of my ‘white’ towels hadn’t seen a washing machine for some time. The restaurant was closed on the night of our stay so we had a bar meal, which to be fair was quite nice. We stayed in the bar for as long as possible – anything to avoid going back to the cell, I mean room. Once back in the room, I decided to pull the blind fully down on the skylight as I like pitch blackness to sleep. Oh no – the blind that was pulled half way down my cracked skylight was only half a blind! Where the skylight was open (to let in some breathable air), a lamp-post outside shone through and reflected off the wall mirror giving a light display that the O² Area would be proud of. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable and even with 4 pillows, I couldn’t get comfortable. Anyhow, these issues were the least of my problems. As I bedded down, I became aware of some shouting and crashing and banging – a refurbishment of a room a few doors away was being carried out at ONE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING. Oh yes, like any customer focused hotel would do, a bathroom was being ripped out and thrown to the ground from a window well into the early hours. Just what’s needed after five hours of travelling and a meeting and when you have to get up for another meeting the following day. I probably had a maximum of 1½ hours sleep. Breakfast was ok, but the service was poor – we waited a long time and another table who came to the restaurant after us were served before us. One plus was Graham, who checked us in, served our food and was behind the bar all night. He was a star and obviously tries his best. This place make Fawlty Towers looks like a high-end, professional establishment. Stay at your peril!
