Ayr, Scotland, United Kingdom
November 2, 2002
Our Delux twin room had been upgraded to a Luxury Suite with two bedrooms a sette and two easy chairs. It also had a private bathroom, mini fridge, colour television, digital clock radio and tea and coffee making facilities. My wife was glad to see that there was an iron and ironing board. Rather essential equipment for travellers but not always there. A safe is also useful and there was one in the room. Something else I like to see nowadays is an internet service. This hotel had data ports on their direct dial telephones for those who had a laptop computer with them. The TV was supposed to offer email but although I could receive I couldn't get it to send. The room was comfortable, quiet, clean and the service top class.
The hotel also has a range of leisure facilities but we didn't use these.
The hotel completely blew its good record, when we decided to have breakfast there. First the waitress came with something completely different from what my wife had ordered and it was not delivered with the pleasant manners we had come to expect during our stay in Canada. The price was also about double of what we had become used to paying.
The lesson was sleep there but eat elsewhere.
