The room was very tired, and had a damp smell. For the price it wasn't very good at all. The room had a balcony with a great view. The staff changed the room when I asked to be moved and couldn't be more helpful. The room I moved to was of a better standard but had no balcony or view and was quite a distance from the entrance. The hotel is undergoing works, but the room original allocated should not be sold at such a high price for its standard. I would not recommend this hotel due to my experience. The staff really are an asset to the hotel.

Really nice, but ask for a quiet room

Would recommend Sat 9 Aug 2014
I stayed two nights - one each before and after a guided cycling trip. The first night I was on the 3rd floor and didn't hear a THING from a huge wedding in the hotel. Sadly that day the lift was out of order, but they were great about bringing my luggage up and down for me. The second night I was in a lower level room and was awakened in the middle of the night by some event in the hotel. When I called down the front desk said he would tell the manager but nothing really came of that. The event ended at 1 am when he said it was scheduled to end so I was awake for over an hour listening to it. Lift was fixed, very nice staff, comfy beds.

Money saver

Pre pay breakfast is definitely a better deal!

Nice and comfortable stay

Would recommend Fri 20 Jun 2014
This is a very old least the building structure and deco...the room is nice and clean and the staff are friendly. The 2 grouses were; 1. if you stay on the second floor like we did, you will need to take 2 separate elevators to get there...a bit of inconvenience 2. fortunately the weather was pretty cool when we were there...there is no air-condition in the room, so if you are warm in the room, you need to open your window. There is however a heater.

The bathroom was dirty. The staff were not welcoming. Breakfast was extra, and poor quality. It reminded me of something from the 1970`s. I would not recommend it. Good location. Poorly trained and de motivated staff.
