  • 4.0.Fair

    The elevator was broken for the whole stay, despite having three rooms, they insisted on charging me for breakfast (in a very surly way), despite it being included with my room - rooms are the same price for 2 people or 1, and we were 2. I have been staying here for years and have never been disappointed... until now. It is no longer what it used to be. The hotel has gotten shabby over the years and needs to be redone. Even 21 Grill seems to have lost its luster - no specials or music on a Friday night. I clearly have to find a new place to stay in Blantyre.
