Have been a regular visitor over many years in this hotel. It is beginning to look a little shabby and tired in the bedrooms and public rooms. The bed bases are on view and stained and unsightly ,not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel.The showers have always been a problem in some rooms, with the drain unable to cope with the flow of water from the shower, which can overflow the shower trays, and end up on the main bathroom floor. The radiators can be noisy in some rooms even when they are not on, and I often find the rooms cold, particularly the bathrooms. The breakfast is ok if you like cooked breakfast everyday, if you don't the choice can be very limited, especially if you arrive after 8.00a.m., it seems that after the initial set up the buffet table is not replenished. There was a traveller wedding being held on our last visit, which meant that we had a very disturbed nights sleep with the noise in the corridors of people talking loudly, and running up and down corridors, which started at 10.00p.m. and the lasted until gone 2.00a.m. as far as I am aware. Although the night porter did attend and asked for quiet. In the morning the wedding guests were arriving for breakfast in pyjamas and dressing gowns, and the bar area was soon taken over by similar with young girls in dressing gowns with curlers in their hair. The distinct impression was that the hotel had been taken over by the travellers. The restuarant is greatly improved by the arrival of a new restuarant manager and the sevice there is very good, but can be hit and miss in the bar area.
