After reading some reviews on here I was worried about what to expect. I had a pleasant surprise. I was first shown a smoking room after requesting non smoking and refusing this I was given a lovely spacious room in the non smoking section of the hotel, which is small. I think some rooms have been upgraded slightly over others, but this hotel has an old world charm about it. It has old style decor, but is not actually old. We ate at the Magnolia restaurant for dinner and the entree and mains were good value for money and tasty, wine is pricey. There are a few improvements needed- toilet doesn't flush well, the kettle was dirty and lid broken and a bar fridge needed. The lounge area is lovely for a drink or a tea and so is the cafe attached. I had an issue waiting 40min for a drink and the waiter arguing with me why I refused to pay this, but the manager was able to sort this out. But this should not happen. This is a lovely place and I would recommend this hotel.
