Hotel was lovely, very central.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, room was very good and clean.
We booked this hotel for my parents-in-law 65th wedding anniversary after visiting and being kindly shown around by a smashing chap.
It wasn't cheap (pretty much London rates) but we felt confident that it would be worthwhile because of the lift facilities and mobility challenged awareness. We arrived to find that our stay was room only despite booking B & B through Late Rooms. The reception staff basically just shrugged and said nothing they could do. The lift was a nightmare to make work and in fact once we just gave up and had to step by step get our elderly parents down the stairs. The room locks sometimes wouldn't unlock but again a lovely member of staff showed us a 'trick' to reboot the electronics. That evening we decided to eat in the restaurant and after nearly an hour and a half gave up and complained at reception. Others in the dining room had been waiting even longer and then we were told by a hugely embarrassed waitress that almost half the menu was unavailable. Actually when the meal arrived it was VERY good. The following day (Sunday) my wife and I came down to the car for a relaxing drink after a hard morning pushing wheelchairs to find no bar staff for 20 minutes. Then a chap arrived and couldn't serve us alcohol "unless you have a beer!" (?) A couple of ladies had ordered a cream tea and were laughing about getting no milk for the tea, no butter or jam for the scones. Really!. In the end we felt that we had to confront the manager on Monday morning, bringing down an electronic copy of our booking showing we DID book B & B. After a 20 minute session the manager did waive the parking charge (that would have been another £50) and agreed that we did not need to pay for breakfasts. This weekend was a shambles. Lovely staff who were badly managed (too typical we are finding). At £150 a night we would expect our original issue with the booking to have been taken up by the Hotel, not have to mess about trying to prove our own case. It turned out the barman was sick (SO SAY SO!). The chef that evening was an agency chef. (Not our problem and no excuse for leaving one waitress carrying the wrath of all the clients). The electronics at the hotel obviously need sorting out not just shrugged at. Such a shame because the rooms were lovely, clean, excellent beds and pillows. Breakfast was very nice and the basic staff faultless and did all they could to be helpful but this hotel needs managing properly and a sort out. You want to charge this level of money you have to provide the service!
