The red carpet, the Portland stone frontage, the revolving doors and the smart and helpful commissionaire said it all! This hotel has been sympathetically refurbished with everything in Art Deco style, even to the bathroom fittings. It's quite splendid. The room was comfortable with a good bed and stylish furniture. The bathroom had great fittings in retro style and... a magnifying make-up mirror! How wonderful when so many hotel bathrooms have low energy lighting. The towels were fluffy.
The window doesn't seem to have been replaced as yet, so we had a harmonica whine of wind through a gap. However, we were tired, so we slept through it.
We stayed for one night with a group of 42 on our way to Edinburgh. We had pre-booked our wants for the evening meal some time ago. We sat down as arranged at 7.30pm, but for some reason the staff were inept and were unable to begin serving the pre-ordered starters until 8.10pm, 40 minutes later. We were tired and hungry. We didn't even drown our sorrows in wine as the prices for fairly ordinary wines were expensive. The main course and desserts followed the same pattern, so a simple meal took ages. The food was fine - when it came!
The breakfast was very good.
The hotel is in a central location overlooking the atmospheric City Square. The statue of the Black Prince is prominent and the flowers show civic pride.
