Dated in everyday but in an excellent position
Posted Sep 4, 2016
Sadly another review about an English hotel which verges on the Fawlty Towers model. we have a choice of this, one that looks like a faded fake stately home or the new business hotel model. Non Metro England hasn't caught up with the American, european or eastern boutique hotels. i.e. no A/C, 70s furniture, no HD TV, soft bed & pillows, dirty nets, etc...
The property needs totally refitting. It's clean and bright but bland & dated in layout and fixtures. The staff are pleasant but suffer form the 'it's not my job' attitude (haven't grasped multi tasking). They were a few things not working in our room, so we wrote a list and left it on the side intending to discuss with reception. When we came back form breakfast the room was made up and it was gone! However, nothing happened. we were going to mention it but checked out early as the weather turned bad.
We were put off by the restaurant, as when we looked in the floor & tables was covered in the results of 'family dinning'.
