As a seasoned business traveller I often stay away in line with my work commitments. With frequent visits to a wide range of hotels you gain experience of what you find acceptable and what you most certainly do not. For example; if the Wi Fi is bad you tend to go elsewhere next time but will use the place as a back-up if a better choice is not available, if the bathroom and bed is unclean you never visit again.
At this particular establishment I encountered a new situation which put me most definitely in 'never visit again' category. I am 36, I have a professional occupation and most of the time I would just like a hotel to provide a comfortable room with some decent food so I can get work out of the way and go home quietly. I am most certainly not 10 years old so be treated like a 10 year old and be put in a position of either complaining or having to leave at 8am for something so basic in terms of running a hotel made me quite agitated first thing in the morning .....
To be clear; when paying the asking price for the accommodation and then coming down for breakfast at 8am I do not under any circumstances whatsoever expect to be informed that I will be sitting next to the chef/ owner on the same table as him for breakfast and that “he does not bite / what do I want for breakfast” all in the same sentence while seemingly interrupting his toast. For a hotel to charge £18 for a fish course, to have at least 15 tables free for breakfast sittings to put its guests in a no choice position of sitting next to a complete stranger for breakfast would suggest they need to look at some of the basic ways of doing things that many hotels seemed to have grasped with ease. Paying guests unless with their party do NOT want to sit next to strangers for breakfast without a choice!
