What a shame this beautiful old building has not been given a little TLC to maintain its former glory. The hotel is tired out, the windows and sills are rotting and are in desperate need of replacement, with the rain and wind the curtains were blowing in our room! The bar area was exceptionally cold due to the ill fitting windows. Our room was dated, the furniture and fittings certainly not from this decade (or the last 3 either!) But aside from the furnishings this hotel has a major cleanliness problem. Dust was present everywhere and the crockery at breakfast was far from sparkling. The food was a throw back to an old school dinner, just about edible but certainly not something you would wish to repeat in a hurry. I would seriously question the no smoking signage in the hotel too as there was definitely a stench of smoke throughout the first floor. The web site says the hotel has recently undergone refurbishment but we saw no evidence of this in any of the areas we used.
The redeeming factor was the friendliness of the staff who are sadly fighting a loosing battle to maintain any standards in this sad,tired hotel.
