Good business hotel
Posted Dec 8, 2016
A nice, very well-equipped hotel. The setting and facilities are great for a business event venue or wedding, but probably not so much for a weekend away, as there is probably a wedding or other function on most weekend nights. The rooms were lovely but you would expect them to be for the price. I asked to change room because the shower was pathetic - a bit of a dribble that went hot and cold. The staff seemed a little surprised at this request and were reluctant at first, telling me to wait until the maintenance person had tried to fix it. So I had to come back to the room in the evening and test the shower for them, at which point they graciously agreed to the move. A surprising level of service, especially as it was a Sunday night; the hotel was practically empty.
The only other issue was the vast, drafty corridors and public rooms - even the restaurant and bar was freezing. Most of the time it seemed to be due to external doors being propped open by staff.
