The front desk staff was so helpful!

Disappointing and cheerless
We spent very little time in the hotel as we were visiting family. The room was bizarre. (312) It was on multiple levels and rather dangerous with a step from the bed level up to the wardrobe level and then another step into the bathroom. Shabby and cheerless decor. I would not recommend. There are other more modern hotels for the same price. Nice public areas create an entirely false impression of the standard of accommodation.

A good hotel
The bathroom needs towel racks and a place to put shampoos, body wash etc in or near the shower. But it was nice and quiet and the staff were very helpful.We loved it's central location.

Grand in it's heyday
Reception and downstairs bar area was very nice and very comfortable, good service at reception and the bar too. My room was a little dated, the furniture looked worn, dated and scuffed. Bathroom was very basic and the towels a little washed out and grey. I also have an aversion to sachet coffee, which was all that was on offer (middle class problems I know). There was a football game on in the evening, this was no fault of the hotel at all but it was a little rowdy outside, some may find that intimidating. I imagine it was once a spectacular hotel in it's heyday.
