I have stayed here a handful of times over the last 15 years and remember when it was a Forte Posthouse.
My latest stay was for 2 nights in October 2012.
Check in was quick and efficient. I booked a standard room and was grateful to be offered an upgrade to an Executive.
My room was perfectly adequate but the airconditioning had no temperature control and just circulated air at room temperature.
Corridor noise is awful, I was awoken by doors banging shut and housekeeping shouting to each other.
The mini bar was fully stocked and still had plenty of room for fresh milk for a nice cup of tea.
On my last day I expected to be out until the early hours so I asked the lady on reception for a 2pm check out. She said I must to pay £20 because it meant keeping staff on for longer.
On the morning of my departure I returned at 5:30am and asked the night porter for a 2pm check out. Thankfully he said yes and said there is no policy to charge £20.
Will I return? Yes. The Priority Club benefits make this hotel a good choice.
