    Yes, the decor is dated. Yes it need a refurb and lots of love poured into it. But my room was a good size, the staff were friendly and breakfast was good. My bed was too soft. Plenty of hot water. Bar was overly expensive.

    This hotel is much in need of refurbishment. Bedrooms has all old fashioned furnishings but is nevertheless comfortable. Bathroom is well equipped. Bar prices are very expensive and breakfast is buffet style all precooked. Restaurant was closed on two evenings with no explanation offered.
