We stayed one night after a trip on the Gloucester and Warwick railway's 'Elegant Excursion' dining train, which was excellent.
Unfortunately the hotel took the gloss off our romantic weekend. Our room was a fairly revolting mustard/ gold colour with the paint marked and chipped. The bathroom was tolerable, but with exposed pipework and second-rate fittings.
Worst of all - and why we rate this 'poor' rather than 'average' - was the shower. When I used it on the evening of our arrival it was inconsistent, one moment the right temperature, then going excessively hot, followed by excessively cold, then back to the right temperature throughout my shower. The next morning when my husband went to use it, it went from the right temperature to scalding and stayed there, so he had to switch it off and rinse himself using the bath taps and a flannel!
Breakfast was adequate. His scrambled eggs were cold, but my eggs Benedict were acceptable and the toast was tasty. The orange juice was nothing special, nor was the coffee.
The service was very good all round, everyone polite and helpful. We mentioned the faulty shower as we checked out, and the receptionist noted it. So if you're in room 16 and the shower doesn't work - don't blame me!!
