          • Older travelers

            The unusual setting and age of the buildings

            No bathrobes in room and towels were very hard and looked a bit worn,

            nice grounds

            access problem to adjoining pub owned by hotel. Had to go on to extremely dangerous road to access it. It would be very easy for the hotel to provide a safe route there. Also, very noisy pipes during the night.

            Convenient location

            Only 2 handlicap parking spaces - are you kidding? About 50% of the time, we couldn't park there as both were already taken (and on one occasion. By a car with no handicap plaque, about which, the staff aparently did nothing even after I had notified them about it - as it was still there a good part of the next day!) Hiding the 2nd person's towels in the wardrobe. WHY? We booked a DOUBLE room and you knew we were a couple and needed towels for 2, didn't you? Sheesh! Turning off the bathroom extractor fan late at night and during the day - I know we all want to save power but puhleease!! There has to be a better idea than just turning it off. People sometimes need to use the bathroom at night and/or during the day!

            Location and the pub next door.

            Thought the room wasn't very well equipped, no mini fridge. Also, quite a lot of noise from the road, other rooms and corridors got into the room despite all doors and windows being shut.

            The staff were courteous and friendly.

            The room was very dated and expensive for what it was. The restaurant was also expensive and the food was very poor.

            Nice big modern room

            Stroppy helpful staff. Overcharged. Room service took 1hr 20 minutes for a ham sandwich. Stupid menu system for ordering food. Thin walls. None of the candidates on my course enjoyed their stayed. Rubbish hotel. Over priced.
