The downstairs of the hotel is not too bad, although the reception area and the resident's lounge are somewhat dated. A little flexibility over check in time would have been welcome as would an offer of assistance with luggage. Food in the restaurant was good - not overpriced and served by helpful staff. Breakfast was particularly good with everything tasting freshly cooked.
Oh dear though. The upstairs of the hotel is quite simply dreadful. The corridors are very narrow and winding which would be fine if it were not for the dark brown paint on the walls, radiators and doors, making the hotel look like a Victorian B&B. The interior designer responsible needs sacking.
The bedroom was simply horrendous. Small, dark and dingy is how it is best described. Although a lovely sunny day outside, it was necessary to have the light on to read. On lifting the somewhat grubby net curtain, the view was directly onto windows opposite.
This hotel is supposed to be a three star hotel. It is not cheap. It is definitely the smallest room we have ever stayed in.
Quite a depressing experience which will not be repeated.
