I was staying with a some friends for a wedding in the area for two nights. It's a great old building, obviously with some history- but it need a bit of a sort out.
Fundamentally room was ok, bit ragged round the edges with things that could so easily be fixed in minutes. Unfortunately heres the problem- the plumbing. There was no water, so wanting to go for a shower in the morning it was a bit of a surprise to turn the taps on to find nothing coming out; same with the sink; same with the toilet. There was nobody in sight at reception, and given the rush I had for the wedding, I used the shower in the ground floor room of one of our party. But the same the next morning- it turns out the water hast to be pumped up to the top floor but discovering over breakfast apparently this problem has been going on for days and the pumps trip out. We didn't get any apology. Curtains didn't fit windows, and the way the building is arranged there was almost a 'hive' of pigeons taking up residence outside the top floor rooms; needs some pest control.
The advantages- it's central in Buckingham, accessible for all routes; food available and parking if theres space which is fair enough. Everyone has one or two bad stays on their travels, I guess this was one for me. I think the place needs to tidy but I wouldn't say avoid it- I'm sure things will be fixed in time.
