There's a certain kind of person who appreciates faded grandeur. There's a certain kind of person who gets dressed up for dinner, even though the food is ordinary, and insists on "tasting the wine" even though the bottle is a screw-top.

Faded, paint peeling and windows that won't close properly. Floorboards that creak so badly it's embarrassing to move. Crooked pictures and holes in the wall.... I could go on. The staff were not welcoming. At breakfast we waited as per the board to no response from any staff. Eventually found a table amongst those uncleared. Not offered a drink, the... More

I stayed at this hotel with my mother and 13 year old daughter. My mother was attending a annual association get together for the weekend (mostly elderly). My mother walks with a stick and requested a disability friendly room. We were in room 31 in the basement. The room was a very good size, lots of space to move about... More

We have stayed at this hotel a few times, it is always clean, the staff are very helpful, the bar and lounge are great places to meet fellow travellers. The meals and service are excellent, always hot and plenty.

As with similar hotels that specialise in group bookings and coach parties it is somewhat tired and drab. However, you get what you pay for and the place is clean and comfortable. The staff... More
