With a day to spare between leaving Liverpool and starting my next assignment in the Wiltshire countryside, I spent the night in a nearby hotel.   Certainly not the 4-star they advertised as, and definitely not a place I would return to!   The inside was grimy, the food shocking, and besides the lousy view, […]
