Reviewed 15 October 2010

The hotel is located a bit further away than the others we had previously used: it's not far from the Municipal Golf Course and about an eight minute walk from Lord Street. So, not too far from where we wanted to be but not a distance you would want to do in the rain!

The room to which we were allocated was on the first floor, facing the top of the stairs, on the right; I can't remember the number. It is a typical converted bedroom, with an en suite fitted into the corner. The room is more than big enough for this to still leave adequate space around the bed. It has a small, old style TV on a wall bracket, just by the entrance. The TV, being an old one, didn't have built-in Freeview but a separate set-top converter box instead. There was no hand control for the TV itself, only one for the Freeview box so it meant having to get out of bed to switch the whole thing off! Below that was a chest of drawers with tea and coffee making facilities provided.

Next to this is a pair of wardrobes with a small dressing table unit fitted between. The only problem here was that the light over the dressing table didn't work because it couldn't be plugged in, being too far from the socket! Not only that but there was no socket for a hair-dryer either; we had to ask for an extension lead! Other than that, there were no complaints about the room. It seemed clean, warm, tastefully decorated and in a good state of maintenance.

The en suite was also clean and well decorated but the shower cabinet arrangement was definitely odd. The door opened onto the narrow gap between it and the wall rather than towards the rest of the room. This was essentially wasted space as you couldn't stand there and dry yourself; you had to move out into the rest of the space to do so! The other issue was that there were definitely nowhere near enough pegs of hooks on the wall but then in that it's no different to most hotel rooms, I find.

These are all relatively minor issues. The room as whole was comfortable and warm, the bed likewise. We did get a good night's sleep and awoke refreshed. My wife used the Wi-Fi facility from our room and it worked well once we had discovered that the security key was written on tiny slips of paper in a bowl on the table in the entrance hall rather than written down in the hotel information book in the room! The connection seemed reliable and adequately fast.

Breakfast in the morning was served in one of the main front-facing rooms; the one across the reception hall is a guests' lounge. Breakfast consisted of a help-yourself buffet for fruit juices and cereals whilst a full cooked breakfast (included in the price), toast and tea or coffee are also available to be ordered. We found the breakfast whole acceptable and entirely satisfying.

Would we stay again? Without doubt. All of the issues I have mentioned are relatively minor niggles and inconveniences but nothing that would turn us off from booking with The Bentine again, and we probably will. However, not all of the rooms have en suite facilities, however, and so guests in these rooms have to use a communal bathroom, something I thought had died out in most hotels these days. This would not be acceptable to us.
