Checked in with high expectations. Checked out with disappointment.
The welcome at the front desk was good and first impressions of the room was good but after a minute in there we began to feel disappointed.
As it was our 15th wedding anniversary, we'd booked the 'executive suite' as it seemed (from the description) to be that bit more special than an average room. We wanted to relax with a hot drink but there was only one type of coffee and one type of tea, four cartons of uht milk and one packet of boring digestive biscuits. We expected a variation of tea/coffee, including decaff, and a selection of biscuits. We also expected enough so we could make more than one drink each. The dado rails, red papered wall and coffee table were very dusty. The toilet roll had a little bit of paper left on it and then there was one full one. We required more the next morning, so I had to go to the public toilets for more toilet roll. Breakfast was nice but one of the female restaurant staff unprofessionally told me that she hated a particular male that passed by. Not sure if he was a colleague or customer but I was rather taken aback by her comment. At the last minute we also realised we hadn't received the complimentary bottle of water in the room as stated in the room description. When checking out, we did inform the lady on reception about our disappointments which she apologised for and said she'd feed back but unfortunately this was not going to do us any good. We were on our way home. Everyone expects cleanliness but when you book an 'executive suite' you do expect that something extra. We didn't experience that at all. We simply had a large room. Nothing special. I haven't been to Blackwell Grange for quite a few years but we did have high expectations. Unfortunately, we were left feeling disappointed.
Made it very special as I was meeting my boyfriend for first time the room was amazing the staff room when we first walked in was plight and kind amazing staff and hotel it self is amazing views amazing inside and out 5 stars to me
