We stayed here for one night on the way to Yorkshire to visit family members. The hotel itself is very grand but parts are in disrepair and look quite shabby.
Our room was very clean and well appointed but the bathroom was very dated and a bit grubby (through wear not poor housekeeping!)
Our meal in the restaurant was very nice, although one course arrived very quickly after another and appeared to have been 'kept warm'. The staff were very friendly and accommodating though. Breakfast was excellent lots of choice and again the restaurant staff were lovely.
The health facilities were a little bit crowded at most times but looked very nice. It was difficult to get an appointment at the hotel beauty salon and pre booking wasn't advised. Despite a few little niggles, it is a genuinely lovely hotel and with what we have learned this time we would probably stay here again. Although the four star rating is a little bit generous!!
