First the negatives then the positives.
Room far too warm even when we turned down the radiator which meant we had to leave our window open - result being we got to sleep after 3am due to the noise from a wedding party at the hotel plus from other drunks outside.
Bed not very comfortable either and felt like we were both sliding towards the middle of the bed. My wife also thought the pillows were lumpy.
Parking very limited too and had to park around the corner on a main street with a disc limited to 3 hours free parking on one side of the street and 1 hour on the other. The staff failed to mention the 1 hour side and only after I asked did they let me know. I had parked on that side so had to go back to my car again to move it - lucky I did not get a parking ticket! Had to go to my car the next day for 9am to avoid parking ticket, not good when you want a lie in.
Positives were great central location, stunning old fashioned hotel inside and out, large rooms and bathrooms plus lovely breakfast.
Would not stay there again I'm afraid due to our sleepless night and the parking situation.
