The staff at this hotel were a pleasure and very friendly.
The location was good for the centre of town and there is limited parking.
The breakfast was of good quality generally although one of our party felt the bread was rather chewy.
I understand that they are renovating this but the problem is it’s just not finished yet.
The reception area and breakfast room are tastefully decorated but the three rooms we had left a lot to be desired. Yes its an old building and they are in the process of updating it but to be honest two of the three rooms we booked were not really something I would feel comfortable letting out.
Two of the three single rooms did not have a head board making keeping the pillow on or comfort very difficult.
The bed in one of the rooms was an old single divan. The linen was clean.
However the shower room was just to say decorated to a suitable standard with a very dated shower curtain and a very old piece of string attached to the plug which was not really hygienic.
My bathroom was clean but one of the travel companions had to clean her toilet as it had not been scrubbed and even the toilet brush was not clean. The towels were not cleaned but left over a radiator to dry.
The wardrobes were at best old and at worst one of our party would not unpack as it was not really suitable or clean enough.
One of the three rooms was decorated acceptably but one of the others had a massive piece of wallpaper hanging off which made it have the appearance of a doss house to be honest. Similarly in the yard there were no less than three shopping trolleys.
The furniture was a mixture of second hand pieces and some made access difficult to the wardrobe
