My bathroom was small with the toilet in a recess. you had to be a contortionist to sit on the toilet! A towel rail jutted out on the left and dug into your ribs so you had to lean to the right to sit on the toilet. Any towels put on the rail would drop into the toilet!
Although the staff were efficient at their own duties. the night I fell over in the dining room they were far from that. I was on my own and unable to get up. Several members of staff looked over in my direction but no help was forthcoming. In the end a guest at a nearby table left her meal and helped me up. I was shaken and bruised but it could have been far worse. Looking round the guests many of them seemed elderly and unsteady on their feet. I am worried if they fell they would receive the same treatment

It is also just a short walk from the bustling 10th-century harbour where Britain’s most famous living artist, Damien Hirst, owns a restaurant.
