Straight away I'm going to be honest I paid £100 for two nights.
Looking at the the hotel from the outside my instant reaction was 'Oh my god, Wow!'. This place wouldn't look out of place in Monte Carlo.
The Adelphi Hotel from the street looks incredible and the history to go with it only adds to the romance.
Sadly that's where the romance ends and I could then realise why it was so cheap.
The inner belly of the hotel needs major refurbishment work. This goes from the lobby all the way up to the 6th floor, being brutally honest, it's a tired hotel.
Everything in the hotel needs looking at and improving. I do not have enough time to go through it all but a perfect example are the two lifts from the lobby.
Too small for the amount of rooms/guests, grubby and slighty malfunctional as only one or two floor button lights actually work. The amount of times I saw new arrivals in pure confusion as to why their floor light wasn't coming on after repeatedly pressing the button became comical.
It's little things like this across the board that all add up to leave you frustrated. This hotel needs major investment to restore it back to it's former glory whilst still embracing the traditional theme and removing the cheap branding signage, 'bomb shelter bar' seriously?!
It became apparent that they now rely on OAP coach trip guests to keep ticking over. I've seen the management deny this in previous guest reviews but it is 100% accurate. It's a sad situation for a hotel once regarded as the best outside of London.
I'd happily pay £200 a night to stay here if it had a refurbishment. It could be incredible with the right vision, right people and money behind it.
