This week Kirstin's going through s.76 Serious Crime Act 2015.  It deals with coercive control - or domestic violence that's not that physical.  We use the scandalous plot of "The Archers" to briefly explain what can make up the background to these new case...

The hotel itself is lovely. However, the"Deluxe Double Room" was tiny, had no air conditioning, had windows that opened onto noisy kitchen extractor fans and was really hot and uncomfortable. When I complained, I was offered a fan and that was it. The toilet paper in the bathrooms is cheap and poor quality and our bathroom had a seizure-inducing light. Finally, the hotel charges an extraordinary£10/day parking charge for guests. When paying £185 for a tiny room on a board-only basis, the parking charge is a real stinger. On the positive side, the residents' lounge is a nice facility and the bar is very good and makes a good cocktail.

This hotel is located right above the visitors' centre for the falls and overlooks the falls. That said, the view is obscured by trees for the most part. Nevertheless, it is very cheap for a hotel in such a central location. It is nestled amongst much bigger players. The hotel is a bit basic and is ageing. The food is provided by a branch of Appleby's and the quality is very basic. You get the $5.95 breakfast with your stay. It is worth no more but is adequate. Any British visitors may want to bring a travel kettle as, like many hotels in Canada, you won't get tea otherwise. The rooms have old AC that is very noisy but they work. The rooms are chintzy but perfectly adequate. On balance, the slightly stressed-out young staff present for you an OK hotel with a little pool and an observation deck that is not worth visiting. But this hotel is all about location. And it has that in abundance.

Staying here as working in the area. This is something of a premier inn flagship. The room was comfortable. The air con was excellent when I figured it out. I didn't eat at the attached restaurant as I ordered a parmo and that was nice. Very good staffin g indeed.
