We got a good deal on the room as we booked early for once! We upgraded and got a superior room and glass of pimms so good start. The staff from reception / bar / breakfast all very pleasant and have a great attitude, customer service ethic - another great assest for any hotel.
The hotel is used as a wedding venue and there was one on the Saturday we arrived - therefore if the staff were going to be under pressure it was then but they seemed to be handling the wedding party and other guests well - it's just unfortunate that we felt that we were crashing the party slightly, especially as we arrived at the front of the hotel as the bride and groom were welcoming their other guests & were a bit confused as to how they knew us! - but the bride looked stunning and no-one seemed to mind. I'm just always a bit wary of hotels who hire out "public" areas and then expect other guests to mingle/make do - to me they should focus on one or the other ... there are a brave few hotels out there which do and it makes it a better experience for all.
I agree with other reviews - the room was very hot with the window open & there are a lot of stairs - but then this is an old building and it's part of the charm. It all seemed clean bar a very dubious stain on one of our lounging chairs - but decor very dated and generally all needed a bit of a lick of paint and bringing up to date - or at least out of the 80's - pine everywhere!
Not a fan of the breakfast - very greasy but it wasn't inedible & the coffee very bland, the service from the waiting staff all good.
