More staff needed at breakfast. Otherwise great.
Great for business. But was let down by staff at customer service not taking down notes on what I asked for breakfast. Too little staff at breakfast is the issue, so then the only member of staff is rushing around. Real shame. As the rooms are perfect for a business trip, and not far from Marlow to pop to for dinner.
