Lovely Hotel which was very clean and staff were great. We were in room 175 and we had a problem with the toilet which would not flush away. We reported this to reception and were later told that the fault had been fixed. Later though when we used the toilet the same problem occurred. Clearly as the cistern was concealed, with no apparent means of getting to it, all the maintenance guys did was chuck a bucket of water down it to get rid of the waste. I mentioned this on check out and the staff were apologetic and discounted our bill. A nice gesture, but the next people who have this room will have the same problem unless it is fixed properly.
