Just returned today from an overnight stay on a deal which was £69 to include B&B plus a bottle of wine in room & £30 towards resteraunt
On arrival we checked in with ease but were told our room wasn't ready yet This was at 3pm & deal stated checking was from 2 Not really a problem as we sat in the bar and had a drink Hubby returned from the bar with the news that a school prom was to take place that night !! Well what a night it turned out to be The school in question was St Aidens High school from Wishaw & it was the teachers & classmates of Nicholas McDonald the young boy from Scotland who was a finalist on X factor on the night of the final !!! ( had he not been on the show then he should have been there to celebrate with his friends ) what can I say ? These kids were a credit to both the school & their parents They were immaculate dressed in their evening wear & after the meal & speeches more than 160 pupils & teachers all converged on the foyer to hear the results of the show Not the result they would have liked but they were gracious in defeat & clapped & cheered the winner Sam A teacher came over & appologised about disturbing our quiet night out ( offered to buy ud a drink which we refused ) & told us we were welcome to join them on the dance floor or use the photo booth they had set up We explained that we were enjoying watching these young folks enjoying their special night out & maybe if they hadn't been there it could have been a long quiet night as there didn't appear to be many other guests staying in hotel
Back however to my review of the actual hotel
We were happy with our room on first impressions & went for dinner in the Ash grill resteraunt We ate from the festive fare menu & we were both pleased with all 3 courses we had After dinner we retired to the foyer & had cocktails which were also lovely and well made
Now to the not so good comments On going to bed we both felt that the mattress was very firm & we were rolling into the middle of the bed Also the chunky wooden bed frame creaked loudly everytime one of us moved !! This resulted in neither of us having a good nights sleep ( we could also hear the bed in the room above us creaking too )
The bathroom looks lovely but is not very practical with no where to put anything down Trying to take medication was difficult with juggling boxes of pills , holding thin plastic cups of water etc We also noticed a lot ob brown / black mould around the back of the showr where the walls & tray meet Very off putting
I wanted to fill out the customer comments form but when I opened it I found it had been filled out by the previous nights guests !! ( not very confidential as this included their full name address & phone numbers)
These problems for me could be easily remedied by replacing squeaky beds with a solid divan / softer mattress & more pillows available
Would I stay again ?? I'm still unsure as for me a decent nights sleep is one of the main points I look for in a night away Sorry !!
