COVID secure, comfortable stay

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Jane D. Business - 14/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights due to business purposes. The information received before my arrival ensured I was well informed of the COVID requirements and compliance. Whilst I had not been able to check in online prior to my arrival, my room key was very quickly available and I was shown up to my room. A breakfast bag is available which has more than enough food in it, or at least for me! Whilst the car park is limited in spaces, during these times with a much reduced guest footprint, it was never an issue finding a space. It is linked internally to the hotel so if the weather is not so nice you do nit need to go outside. My room was a comfortable size, I was in the Victorian part of the bite, and had a fridge as well which was a pleasant surprise and. It detailed on the website. As expected, everything was clean and tidy. The only thing I did not like about my room was on the couple of windy evenings the windows rattled quite loudly. If someone was a light sleeper this could cause a challenge. I did. It ask to move rooms, which I am sure would have been accommodated had I done so.

Everything was very much scaled back but the room was clean and warm. Would have appreciated a coffee machine but privilege room were not available. Why not simply move the machines to the normal rooms especially as breakfast was only available in your room?
