Business Trip Overnight Stay
Posted Jul 24, 2015
I booked this hotel for an overnight business trip through Expedia and it seemed a really good deal at £79.00. First impressions were very good, but it is really a health spa attended mainly by ladies who want to be pampered (nothing wrong with that). There is a good gym and pool, but there is no bar as such (unless you like mint tea and smoothies). I found a very good pub a short walk away (The Crown) so that was good. The main down side to my stay was that the complimentary shampoo, etc. in the room had not been replenished (half empty), and the bottle of still water was three quarters empty. Breakfast does not commence until 07.30am but that is too late for a business trip. I asked at reception if it was possible to eat a little earlier and after a phone call was told that I could go to the buffet breakfast from 07.00am. When I turned up at 07.10am nobody seemed to know about this, and the staff were off-hand. I left without breakfast.
