Am very reluctant to issue the name of this, until now in our eyes, the perfect stop-over group, but have to offer this overview as a small but definitely needed warning to other travellers, especially lone women of a somewhat timid nature. All we can say is that Lenny Henry likes to lay his head there apparently!

We are normally very security conscious but on this one particular evening, tired from a long, late journey we omitted to hang the “Forty Winks In Progress” on the door and even worse, put the lock on. Of course, the inevitable occurred even though it should not have. At 2.35 a.m. I suddenly woke to someone entering the room with a swipe key and immediately shouted “Hey, what do want?” – or words to that effect. My husband leapt naked out of the bed, all 20 plus stone of him and an ex-Flying Squad detective and “flew” to the door and accosted the night manager who explained he was, “Just checking the room out”. Needless to say I spent the rest of the night shaking and worrying and my husband, “I’ll sort this out in the morning”.

Apparently the gentleman in question was mortified and we were refunded our night’s stay. The moral, however, is to ensure you put the safety lock on and hang your hanger!
