Weekend away

At first we were given a room down in the basement at a much older and less cared for part of the hotel. The radiator was making a constant noise, which we complained about and we were told we might be able to move the next day. Next day came and there was no warm water to the taps or shower so we really needed to move. Hotel staff helpful and moved all our luggage to the other side of the hotel and a deluxe room. It was so much better, lovely bathroom, much bigger bedroom. The hotel over all is very nice but if booking definitely ask not to be put in the basement! Excellent location for station and good breakfast.

The best thing about my stay was...

Being moved to better room
