Fab hotel, fab weekend

The Manor house hotel was lovely we felt like a Lord and Lady for the weekend.

The room was exciting large and the bed huge. Food was excellent and so was the atmosphere. The stables bar was very cosy and the staff extremely friendly. The Spa was a delight, relaxing in the Jacuzzi was just shear pleasure. West Auckland itself is very tired looking but in all honesty you really did not need to move out of the hotel because everything you needed was provided for.

Room 35! Horredous room!

My partner and I were put in room 35.

We dragged our bags up a very grand staircase to find ourselves at the bottom of a very thin staircase which had rope as a bannister. Squeezing through the corridor we met our room. This room was a loft. After ducking to get through the door I then spent the remainder of the stay bent over. There was not one area in the room I could stand up. The beams were extremely low and the sloping ceilings made walking impossible. The bathroom although clean was ridiculous. There was a tiny bath which you could not lie in. The shower head was attached to the taps however with the sloping ceilings it meant you couldn't have a shower standing up. The alternative was to fold yourself up in the tub and use the shower head. The mirror was behind a beam so it could not be used without hiting your head. Which I did several times. Anyone with a disability, taller than 5ft 6 would not be advised to stay in this room.

The next morning there was no hot water. The heating clicked all day and night and the room was very cold even with the use of the portable heater. On the morning of check out I spoke with a young gentleman and explained about the room, he then questioned why I was put in that room, he agreed that it was a 'last resort room' and that there were plenty of other rooms we could have stayed in. He also grinned when he agreed the size and quality of the room was poor and unsuitable.
