If you have read any of my reviews you will know I try to keep a positive spin on things, and whilst I really liked the pub ALOT the rooms just let me down a bit. I had what is advertised as a superior King room. I've never stayed in a boutique hotel before and as I was in a tight spot for some accommodation this night, this was my only option. So I took it. On first impressions the room is beautifully decorated in creams and coffees. The en suite had a lovely big shower cubicle with rainfall shower. However, on closer inspection a few things just weren't right. The room was very dusty, the kingsize bed is just too big for the room (the en suite door only just opened and was touching the beds side) there was also slimy scum around the bottom of the shower and an over powering smell of drains when the shower door was opened. The windows which are full length glass look straight out onto Gloucester road and across to neighbouring properties; if you were getting dressed or undressed the curtains had to be closed as there were no nets or blinds. There was nothing extraordinary about this room, no individual touches I was expecting. The thing that stuck in the throat however was the fact that on the website it stated breakfast was included; BEWARE......this only includes a basic continental option of cereal toast and croissants. If you want a cooked breakfast this is an extra £3.00. I know, £3.00 maybe does not sound a lot, but this should be made really clear prior to booking. At the room already being £109 and with no single supplement reduction offered (I was happy to accept any room they had) I feel I had already paid enough for something which I feel could have been so much better. On the upside if you like a chilled surround with great beers and ciders then this is a great place to come with nice food on the menu. But I don't think I would stay here again as I feel it's just overpriced. I am not surprised it was not fully booked.
