A birthday weekend away at a quiet and just lovely hotel

Over-Priced Out-Dated Hotel
Check out process took 20 minutes and three men to figure it out. Why pay Hotels.Com when the hotel is going to charge me anyway? Very incompetent people at the front desk upon departure. My colleague who checked out later had a similar experience. Lots of work to be done in training the staff, and in improving the hotel conditions. I will never stay here again. Hotel Du Vin is a much better value with a great staff, great food, and nice rooms.

Couple with a baby - May bank holiday
The hotel is in a great location and the communal areas are nice. Breakfast was good and the Chinese restaurant is exceptional. All staff were friendly and helpful. What stopped me giving a pretty good review is how dated the room was. Very tired. TV bracket hanging off the wall, worn fixtures and fittings, had to use a pair of tweezers to get the plug up and down. Also - the bathroom radiator was stuck on which made things quite uncomfortable during the hottest May bank holiday on record. The charge to park at £10 per night annoyed me, when paying pretty good money to stay for 3 nights I think this charge is not necessary. Scrap the parking charge and refurbish.
