Stayed at this establishment over easter weekend 2014. Receptionist very efficient and friendly as were all staff we encountered during our stay. Food at breakfast and dinner
was well presented , hot and of decent quality . Alas the same cannot be said about the general facade and cleanliness of the room we were allocated. (210 on top floor) please see pics as example of what we encountered.. Dust in abundance , mouldy cracked window panel, badly soiled shower curtain, stained bed throw, Bodged up bath,these are just a few of our observations i could list many more. Its rather sad that what could be a very fine Hotel (good central location and fabulous history ) appears to be in the spiral of decay,This Hotel need a thorough overhaul before its too late and the cleaning issues need to be urgently adressed.
