The Eliot hotel is fine if you're on a coach tour - not sure I'd want to visit as an independent traveller.
It's a very tired looking hotel, but the lovely staff make it a pleasure to stay.
I didn't meet a member of staff who didn't go out of their way to make my stay pleasant.
The rooms aren't very attractive - but they are clean and well maintained. The shower in our room broke during our stay and someone arrived within minutes to check the problem - and it was fixed very quickly.
The staff in the dining room are a pleasure to meet.
They deal with the most awkward of people with a smile.
Sally was a delight - and James is a one man cabaret act who you can't watch without smiling.
The manager is very efficient and seems to run the hotel well.
I do prefer a more 'chatty' manager, but that's my problem - not his.
I do have one complaint about my room - number 207.
Unfortunately it is positioned right above the benches people use to smoke!
The smell at times is disgusting!
It was a very warm week and we couldn't have the windows open because of the smell.
I'm sure if we had complained the lovely staff would have moved us - but the room does have one of the better views.
We decided to put up with the smell because of this.
If you are prepared to take the rough with the smooth this is a nice place to stay.
