Got this as a Lastminute.com mystery deal so can't be too critical as it was well priced, and it is very central (if in a somewhat grotty area). Staff were welcoming and attentive, public areas are grand and historical and really well renovated, bar is nice and cosy. Our room however, was like the ad for Trivago - we had 2 windows, both of which looked out onto a brick wall! Both were also painted shut which always makes me nervous. Room itself was well decorated but small - so small that it was pretty hard to sit in the one easy chair without bumping into the bed or the other occupant! And the bathroom whilst new and clean had no extractor fan. This is a major bug bear of mine - as it renders it impossible to use the mirror after someone has showered, and well trying to be polite here, if someone needs to "make use of the facilities", there is then a dreadful whiff wafting through the room!!! And no loo brush ...... do I need to continue
On a minor point - housekeeping. We put out the sign saying "don't change towels etc" and indeed left the room tidy, having only dumped our bags and had a cup of tea before leaving. So I was a bit disappointed to find dirty tea cups when we returned. I know we didn't ask for the full room clean service, but this is a no-brainer that the cups would be cleaned, and the bathroom given a quick wipe, even if we were keeping our towels and sheets.
