We stayed at this hotel in October it was somewhat a last minute decision and while on the road rang ahead to see if they had any rooms available, all that was left was an "Oriental" room at the top of the house which we took, we checked in and were taken to our room by a lovely chap who informed us he has lost several inches off his waist carrying bags up and down the stairs since he started! Really nice guy. We wanted to freshen up before dinner and do I went for a shower in the Bath/Shower however the bath is quite a step and whatever way it had been cleaned/polished it was absolutely like an ice rink and I slipped and got an awful bang battered and bruised, I felt that there are not enough safety bars etc and the "bath matt" was on the very bottom shelf of the bathroom cabinet. We went to dinner in the restaurant and the food was really fabulous, very enjoyable the staff were lovely and friendly.
Although I made a comment on the comment card I never heard a word from the hotel I though it would have been nice for them to make a follow up call.
