Stayed two nights at the end of September. First impression is great, beautiful hotel over looking the bay, gorgeous lobby with a double staircase, attentive staff, relaxing spacious lounge and bar area, large dining room, all well maintained and furnished. The rest of the building though felt quite run down, carpets in the hall way very loose and gathered - almost a trip hazard, aged decor. Tray of dirty glasses on our floor were left uncollected for 24 hours. Our room looked like it had been last updated 20 years ago, felt tired. Old box television, far too small for the room. No wifi in rooms which I would expect to be standard for a hotel of this size, wifi only available in lounge area and connectivity was very poor at best - often none at all. No onsite parking - pay and display across the road. However, room was clean and quite, and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was suberb, polite and efficient staff.
Would be nice to see some money spent on restoring the upper levels of this hotel to its former glory. Decent value for the location and the breakfast.
