I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The location is great, Shop Street, pubs, restaurants etc are all within easy walking distance and the hotel is very clean. My complaints are cosmetic!
The decor upstairs of rooms facing the front is beautiful, they have kept the old traditional look which fits in lovely with the building however my husband stayed in the hotel a few nights previously and was in a room overlooking the station (at the back) and he said they weren't half as nice but still fine. I really don't like what they have done downstairs in the main hotel reception areas, the walls are painted black and gold giving it a modern facelift but I remember staying in this hotel nearly 30 years ago and I think the old owners would be turning in their graves to see it now. It was such a grand hotel years ago, now it feels like a hotel trying too hard. I would stay here again but I really don't like the decor downstairs! The No. 15 restaurant served a great breakfast with very pleasant staff but the restaurant lacks character for an evening meal.
