From the outside a lovely looking hotel. We thought the inside may be somewhat tired as is so often the case, but not this time. The communal areas are very much in keeping with the hotel's era, think oak panelled walls and higgledy piggledy corridors. We saw 2 rooms , the first a standard twin. A large spacious room and a equally luxurious bathroom. We were then upgraded to a suite when reception realised they has checked us in to a permanent twin room. Just through courtesy, not from a fuss made by us, they called within 5 minutes of us getting to the room so hardly a problem, but they insisted and we obliged! The suite was lovely, separate sleeping, lounge and dressing rooms. Both rooms decorated to a high standard, but not soulless modern, definitely in keeping with the look of the hotel. All the staff we extremely polite and friendly and the breakfast buffet was a great spread which was regularly replenished. Definitely would stay there again
