    Property condition


      I've stayed at the Cavendish before a couple of years ago around the same time of year. This hotel has so much potential due to its location and style. Our room needed some definite TLC. There was a hand shower in the bathroom which was broken, but the staff appeared unconcerned when reported. I should note there was still the overhead shower which worked. The room was basic with mismatch of furniture that looked a bit rough. A shame as it has so much potential.
