Stayed here with work for one night. Check in was good and parking relatively easy. The hotel itself is very impressive inside and welcoming. My room was a bit on the small side and warm but staying in an older hotel it's to be expected and adds to the originality of it. There is no room service so I ate in the brasserie- I had a sandwich and chips which was delicious however I ordered a desert at ten to nine to take back to the room- 45 minutes later I asked where it was to be told it was coming, a further 15 minutes passed so I asked again and was told 'we are busy' it didn't look it but appreciate it may have been in another area. I then asked for it to be brought to my room as I and work to do and and hour wait was long enough really- 20 minutes later it arrived but if had been left and the ice cream had a all melted and didn't taste nice- not what I was expecting. Although not a big deal it spoilt it having to wait so long for something not so great. The girls waitressing were extremely polite and apologetic, the man behind the bar wasn't quite as friendly! Breakfast was busy but dealt with efficiently and it was tasty. I would stay here again for work or pleasure but would think twice before eating in an evening.
