.. and as a business stopover for one night at the lower end of the cost allowance, I shouldn't complain. The staff are all pleasant, breakfast service is good and the night porter was very friendly one night when I arrived well after midnight. The building itself is quite grand externally, but with few nice features inside and a very quirky layout. That's the drawback with this hotel -it doesn't deliver on the experience promised from outside but is like stepping back in time - in a bad way. The bedroom furnishings are plain and very drab, like something from an eighties student hall and the bar lounge is out of keeping with the building. Just bad taste really, so nothing worthy of complaint, just very so so, which is a pity, as the staff would probably like to see some money spent on the place too.
