Convenient for Anvil theatre

Pros: Comfy bed
Cons: Shower
Location: Theatre and shopping centre
Room was fairly good bed comfortable and clean, We did have a problem with the shower although a nice big one you had to turn tap full on for hot water and ended up flooding bathroom also the water didn't run away fast enough so had water running out of the shower basin as well, but apart from that hiccup was a nice cheap hotel.

Great Hotel, bad timing

Pros: Excellent Breakfast
Location: Stonehenge, Bombay Saphire Distillary tour, Lavestoke Farm Park.
A stay that had to cut short due to work commitments, but the time we spent there was very comfortable. Due to a road accident on the 1 way system we had a lot of difficulty getting to the hotel car park and some scaffolding work made sure we got up in time for breakfast - not much the hotel could do about either of these events. What they could do - they did very well. I'd book there again.
