5 Star Luxury shame about the noise

Let me just say I've stayed at this hotel before and it was perfect. However on this occasion our room looked onto a building site with work being carried out till teatime. Then at 05.30am I was woken by what sounded like furniture being moved around on the floor above this lasted for a couple of hours, there was also a cold draught from the window. The rooms are large, luxurious, comfortable and the staff excellent.

The best thing about my stay was...

The deep sunken bath
