Brilliant we were able to give you an upgrade B and yes we are on a busy corner but the double glazing does help with the road noise and some days are quieter than others. Most people don't notice it all. We pride ourselves on customer service so thanks for that comment on friendly hosts! Thanks again for staying here at the Saxton Lodge.

Hi there and thanks for taking the time to write a review! Sorry you could not find the hairdryer as there is one in every room and usually they are on the shelf in the wardrobe right opposite the bathroom as there are no drawers or shelves in the bathroom vanity. The shampoo and conditioner dispensers are attached to the shower wall and always full. I guess sometimes things are where you least expect them. Thanks again for staying.
