My husband and I have regularly stayed in the hotel over the last 9 years prior to joining our cruise holidays. Over the last few years we had noticed some deterioration in service standards and decoration so were pleased to hear prior to our last stay that following a change of ownership the hotel was gradually being refurbished. We specifically requested a refurbished room and were pleased with what we were allocated (room 441). It was fresh, clean and had a lovely balcony even though we had not specifically requested one. Minor point - room was not ready until about 3.30 pm so slightly late. Staff were all friendly and effective - another improvement since we last stayed. Great evening meal in the restaurant and breakfast was to a good standard ( although not a big fan of having to make your own toast!). It's good to see that this hotel is seemingly on the up again - however there's still a feeling that it's not quite where it should be and there are a few minor finishes that could still be improved - ( eg the bottom of the glass lift area really needs a good clean!) we are looking forward to our next stay later in the year when hopefully such snags will have been sorted out.
