Stayed here for 1 night at the weekend. On first impressions, it's an impressive building and I imagine at one time it was a beautiful home.
It's clearly been neglected over the years. There's a lovely mezzanine landing that should be really stunning as it's up a beautiful, old fashioned staircase, but they've placed some really old sofa's there?! Some random vases with dried flowers and mismatched pictures on the walls.
The bedroom doors are ill painted with really bad door handles. There's no real style or substance here.
We were in room 16, which is quite far from reception. Room adequate (only 1 pillow each), Mismatched furniture though and is there really a need to have such an old plastic phone in the room. So old it had gone yellow?!
Breakfast the next day was woeful. Very understaffed, No clean tables. Poorly laid cereals and fruit (did not match up to menu options). No brown bread for toast. They cook your breakfast to order which is nice a touch but it wasn't actually very tasty.
This place could, and should, be fantastic... sadly, something is going wrong.
I don't think we will return.
