If I'm on a business trip the most important aspect of any hotel is that I can get a good nights sleep after a good meal, wake up refreshed and after a good breakfast feel ready to meet the day, head on and focused.
Well, now I know that I'll not be staying at this hotel again.
Reception was dull and dark and very basic, the room 109 was up and down stairs and corridors and looked out over a vast expanse of flat roof with the beautiful moors away in the distance.
Dinner was OK, if rather over cooked (Steak and Ale pie) the restaurant Manager obviously did his best to make the experience as enjoyable as
possible! Then off to bed, this was just about the most uncomfortable that I had tried to sleep on in many years and defeated my best efforts until exhaustion beat the discomfort at 0130.
I was awake again at 0530 after struggling to stay asleep since about 0500.
I went down for breakfast at 0730 and it was a rather greasy buffet which you had to fetch yourself though it was served for you in measured portions.
The best part of my visit was checking out.
