If there is one overriding factor, above all else, that determines whether a hotel is worth it's weight... It's the quality of sleep. At this hotel I didn't sleep. Dragging tables, chairs, other items of furniture over solid floors at 4am is unfair and unfriendly, especially when it's the staff who are doing it. The whole place reminded me of my granma's obsession with kipper tails and long draping curtains, stripy wallpaper and patterned deep-pile carpet. And front-of-house areas are reminiscent of a hunting lodge, complete with old, stuffy, fur coat wearing clientele. During our stay, there was a FNFF function going on downstairs (search for it). Overall, really really bad. The Christmas tree, however, was nice.
