I chose the hotel because of its proximity to the railway station as I had an early departure the next day. It is very close to the station and that connection worked well.
On the negative side - the room was not ready at the time indicated. OK I only waited 30 mins but it was poor., The whole ambiance of the hotel was old fashioned and a bit quirky, it could have come out of the 50s - maybe some like that. The facilities of the room were OK but nothing special. The breakfast room was a bit hard to find but at least started serving from 7am. A curiosity was the lift which regularly (3 times) took 5 minutes or more to arrive. I have no idea why, just another feature of this peculiar place.
