The good things were: (1) plenty of car parking space; (2) comfortable bed; (3) convenient for the M4 motorway; (4) cooked breakfast
The bad things were: (1) tired decoration; (2) the shower control came off in my hand; (3) the shower was fixed to the wall, so it's necessary to contort oneself to rinse the soap off the less exposed parts of the body; (4) directions to the hotel are inadequate: you need a large-scale map to work out the complicated junction after leaving the motorway and to avoid going in completely the wrong direction; (5) it's a long walk to the nearest railway station, and that's on a minor line with trains that stop at every station; (6) the cooked breakfast did not offer a full English breakfast but only elements of one - scrambled egg and bacon, for example, or egg and sausage, but not egg AND sausage AND bacon AND mushroom; (6) the toast was soft and almost white - it must have been waved in front of the toaster, not put in it! (7) I certainly didn't want more "toast", but it would have been nice to be asked instead of having the plates whisked from the table before I had even stood up.
It's not an expensive hotel, but neither is it cheap, and I think we are entitled to better standards at that price. I would certainly not consider staying here again.
