Totally gutted on reading all these glowing reviews that we did not have a similar experience. Reception and our room were unbearably cold on arrival. The heat pump had a difficult job keeping the room warm. The bed was hard. The bed linen consisted of a thin duvet inner between two sheets. Lighting was poor - two bedside lamps and a desk lamp. There were down lights over two of the windows but they did not work. Small flat screen TV with minimal channels. As the evening progressed noticed that the area on the vanity unit behind the sink was covered in dust. On closer inspection realised that our room had had only a surface clean. The whole room plus furnishings were in need of a good dusting. Did not dine at the restaurant as we were advised by a staff member that we would have a much more enjoyable meal across the road. Have looked up the hotel website since and the room we stayed in, The Didsbury Room, is described as their "luxury room". This was to be the highlight of our trip, according to our daughter who stayed here two years ago. Shame on you Martinborough Hotel!
