You can tell that the White Hart was once a smart hotel in the middle of this historic town. However, it clearly hasn't had any investment or redecoration for years. I had a room in the annexe which was straight out of the 1970s. The first room I was given was a ground floor one with no lock on the patio door (this for a female solo traveller who had specifically asked not to be on the ground floor). To be fair to the hotel they moved me upstairs without demur into a very similar room with a TV that didn't work properly (and which reception said they couldn't fix as it was due to the reception in the area). Two positives are location - the hotel is right in the middle of town and therefore handy for the station and restaurants - and that there is a swimming pool for the use of guests. However, my stay wasn't a very pleasant one, the room was incredibly hot (even with the window open this did little for the temperature) and the bed wasn't comfortable. I went out to eat as I didn't fancy the look of the dated dining room. I wouldn't stay here again unless it is modernised/changes hands.
