we stayed here for a birthday celebration. There was 13 of us travelling on the train with superbreak holidays. For the money we paid we cannot really complain about our experience however if you are paying full price for this hotel i can understand why some people feel the need to complain. Our check in was relatively simple but once we got everyone else off to their rooms the birthday girl pushed her luck and asked for a complimentary upgrade. This was seen as no problem however after some jiggery pokery on the computor the receptionist decided she did not have the authority to give an upgrade. We are still waiting for the manager to recontact us to authorise this upgrade.... However 13 chocolates and a piece of strawberry was sent to our room so all was not lost !!!!!!... The heat in this hotel is overpowering. If they cooled things down a bit they could probably charge less for their rooms. The windows were permanently open in the room despite it being March.
All our rooms on the fourth floor varied in size but were all more than adequate with clean sheets and clean towels. We dont go away to watch tv so werent bothered about the old sets. The shower was hot and powerful. The room on the fifth floor was massive with a huge bed, The single was spacious with a good three quarter bed rather than a single.
Breakfast was hot and tasty however i have never been to a hotel where you need to order a fried egg with your waitress. Your waitress does not ask you if you need a fried egg so once you have filled your plate from the buffet and look for the fried eggs they are nowhere to be seen. The chef was filling the sausage tray when i was at the buffet,. when i asked where the eggs were he said to order with the waitress and promptly walked off without offering to fry/order one. Bizarre. Needless to say seeing as how my plate was already full i had to make do with scrambled egg. There is a small sign at the buffet but by the time you see this it is too late.... eggs were promptly ordered the next day prior to filling our plates however they still arrive at your table while you are half way through your breakfast...Very strange.
The location of this hotel is great... Not far from all the shops and bars and two minutes from the train station. Because of this and if the price is right we would stay here again. I think you have got to ignore the shabbyness of the woodwork here. I'm sure if i was as old as this hotel my sills would be looking a bit shabby......
Good stay for a good price so cant complain really,,, Sort the eggs and cool the place down and very good rating would be on the cards
