An empty car park.......
...........upon arriving, I thought the hotel had probably closed because the car park was almost empty. Indeed it was not very busy - the following morning there were about 5 cars only.
welcomed with grace and courtesy, offered points or a drink (I always choose the points) and allocated a really nice room.
Dinner was good, I had the fish and a splendid glass of NZ sauvignon blanc, served promptly but discreetly.
Replete, I wandered back to my room and had a first class night's sleep.
All the above made for a splendid stay. [Less]
