Well, as an end of exams treat my partner and I, we decided to book a room for the evening as we had already been bought a voucher for the evening meal. At £160 an evening I can safely say that it was the most expensive and unsatisfying trip to a tip I ever made. As the beautiful exterior of the building lolls you into a misguided sense of grandeur, the first wave of disappointment hits when you are shown to a filthy outdated room complete with stained curtains and table with the damp peeling wallpaper to offset the feel of the room. The next treat comes when using the bathroom and the pipes being so loud you mistakenly assume a tank must have driven in there unspotted. The pathetic shower also went cold when my partner used the loo, a further sign of the bad plumbing all in all contributing to the worst value for money accommodation that I have ever stayed in. Finally, upon waking the next morning hoping breakfast could at least salvage some aspects of the trip I was bitterly disappointed. Every thing bar the black pudding was overcooked and dripping in grease to the point of inducing nausea. A complete and utter waste of money and time, a business concerned with the complete daylight robbery of its patrons with no redeeming features whatsoever. Do not bother.
