I was very upset that the room we stayed in had the window padlocked, and the frame was thick in paint so would not have been opened for many years, which meant no air, and on a very warm night with NO air conditioning, it was really not acceptable. We had a noisy electric fan which did not cool the room down and we had to leave the door to the hallway open for some air, which helped slightly. We were unable to sleep in such heat. The bed tail and head boards were very wobbly and we felt it could collapse at any time, which also prevented any chance of sleep.
The bathroom door opened onto a deep step which was a worry to us at our age. We felt the room we had was overpriced for what we had, and we were disappointed.
On a plus side,the bathroom was very clean.
Breakfast was fine and the lady serving was charming, but we had to cross the street from our room to the hotel for breakfast, in the rain.
The bar meals were good too.
The main hotel is full of beams and is quaint, but I think padlocking the bedroom windows lets the hotel down.
