Room was not serviced properly throughout our three day stay. The last day it was not serviced at all; apparently the housekeeper was on leave(?). Carpet not vacuumed or waste bins emptied during our stay. Access corridor carpet to rooms covered in wet, dead leaves. Had a room facing the main road and poorly fitting window meant all traffic noise was heard, particularly during commuting hours, stating around 6am. Eat once in the restaurant; food and service good. However, the bar and restaurant were closed on our first night (new year's day) and only found out as I called the Rising Sun directly to book an evening table. Could be a good hotel, but needs serious attention to detail.
