We booked a 3 night stay to have something to look forward to in January...NEVER again will I book a hotel without reading reviews first! We had booked an internal room but decided upon arrival to "push the boat out" and upgrade to a Premier Room...I'm still trying to figure out what was "Premier" about it...there were punch holes in the wall, enough beds to sleep 6 people, the decor hadn't been updated for what looked like 30 years and the beds were solid with pillows only a little softer than concrete. Shabby, worn and old sums up the whole hotel. It was also freezing cold and when I told reception staff I couldn't get the heater to come on, they advised it wasn't controlled by guests but was on a central timer. To be fair they did offer to send a heater to the room which helped a little. The highlight of our stay had to be seeing an unconscious male laid out on a communal settee, surrounded by empty White Lightning bottles & cans of strong lager being roused by 2 members of staff telling him he couldn't sleep there...it was lunchtime! On a more positive note, it was acceptably clean (or I would have left immediately) and the shower was powerful....I really can't think of anything else positive to say. The building was clearly very grand and opulent in it's prime, unfortunately that was probably at the beginning of the last century (which may well have been when it was last updated) !
