Yes this hotel is tired, it has been in administration since 2006?. But it has lots of charm, why do the patrons not frequent the bar which is OK, yes it could be better but if you do not use the hotel it will not get investment it needs.
The staff try their best and I feel are always doing their best for the customer and it must be hard knowing that you are in a one horse twon and that horse is the University which covets your position, your history and I suspect would be able to get this little old lady at a knockdown price.. More student accommodation, or more confernece facilities but I suspect litlle more choice for the visitor.
We have stayed here twice and hope to get to stay here many more times before our daughter graduates. The evening meal always gives us a nice option, and a little walk up the stairs.
Please hotelliers keep this little gem, and if you can update - I am sure it will pay off. Though I suspect our room rates will be too high.
