Staycation 12th - 14th September. I had booked an Executive King with Balcony and we were so lucky the weather was lovely so were able to enjoy and make use of the balcony. Check is was quick and easy and the lady of the front desk was very efficient. Hotel decor was really nice and that followed into the majority of the room. There are a few tweaks which could help improve the rooms. Carpet in the rooms looked a bit worn and probably could be re-done. In the bathroom we had a shower, however when using the shower half the bathroom floor become flooded due to the angle of the shower head. We had breakfast both mornings which I would say for £15pp was pretty disappointing. Whilst we are all adjusting to a new way of life including stays at hotels I don’t believe that this should effect the service in any restaurant including a hotel restaurant. Service at breakfast was painfully slow, there were by no means enough staff during breakfast. Both mornings I had warm coffee which was not enjoyable at all. Overall the hotel, rooms and public areas were very clean and everybody was aware of social distancing throughout the hotel. However the minimal improvements that could be made to this hotel would make your stay much more enjoyable.
