8/10 Great

18 January 2015

Room with no view

Just back from a two night stay. Was disappointed to get a room with no appreciable view, only of flat roofs and sides of buildings, especially as the hotel did not seem to be particularly busy. Also had to get bedside lamp repaired as the plug was broken. Strangely it was an old round pin 5 amp plug! Because of the above grumbles we decided to have our evening meals elsewhere.

The best thing about my stay was...

Breakfast
4/10 Average

Disappointing for a 4 star hotel

Room far too hot, very uncomfortable even with window's open. Bathroom not clean, very visible dirt around tap and shower screen Meal in café- hamburger, should have been medium but arrived very rare. Replacement too ages to arrive and was not worth the wait. It was tasteless pile of mince. Breakfast was a buffet which was just about warm. The poached eggs were cooked on request and perfect. Expected better as 4 stars would indicate.

The best thing about my stay was...

View over golf course from breakfast restaurant window
