I found it slightly odd to have to walk through the bar to get to the slightly chaotic reception area, and had quite a wait for someone to book me in. However, the staff are friendly and I was led up to a small, but nicely furnished room with two windows, so it was nice and bright. The view wasn't that great, but I wasn't staying there for the view. The windows had wire mesh fitted to them to stop the pigeons flying into the room. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and well furnished. Don't expect lifts or air conditioning, this is an old building with some character and so there is nowhere to fit mod cons. They do offer free Wifi. The bathroom was larger than I expected, given the size of the room. Bath with shower over, sink and loo and all lovely and clean. I was really looking forward to a shower after my long and hot drive down. But, when I gently pulled the shower curtain the whole frame collapsed and covered me with a shower of plaster from the ceiling. So, no shower for me. I would recommend the restaurant, I had a lovely meal and some entertainment from a visiting group who were interested in the wallpaper that had once adorned the restaurant walls. So, a lovely meal and a history lesson. I would stay here again, especially now that I know how to find the car park. It is across the road from the hotel by the way.
