This hotel has been a grand one in its day. There are still features that remain but some of them really need to be refurbished. That said, we all know once work is done to return this grand hotel back to its original splendour the cost would have to increase.
We booked B&B for two nights staying with four good friends. Our room was a large one above the entrance, room 100. It was fine for what we paid. All facilities, large bathroom, king size bed , crisp white bed linen. Needed to open the window as very warm, fine when radiator turned off.
There are some things that would have to be noted if we were paying 5 star prices, but we weren't.
There are plenty of good restaurants nearby to eat in the evening and very pleasant to walk out along Lord Street.
Breakfast was fine, orange and grapefruit slices, peach slices, prunes and porridge. Plenty of plain or fruit yoghurt. Croissants, toast, jams. Cooked breakfast for those who wanted more, I was told it was a good one, plenty of choice as well as boiled eggs too. A bit busy but that's how it is with buffet service, it was fine.
Location is perfect for shops and seafront.
