We spent a very uncomfortable night here on the 16th July. Temperatures were high in the bedroom due to the unusually hot British summer and we had to have the windows opened all night. Due to the air conditioning units being used to keep the Home and Gift Fair marquees cool there was a terrible noise. (Pity there was no air conditioning or even a fan in our room). If there had been a mini bar/ or small fridge in the room we could have tried drinking cold water but the complimentary water was so warm it was undrinkable. The food in the restaurant was dire. The staff in the restaurant were very kind and considerate. It is a great pity the 'chef' was not up to their standards. One particular member of the reception staff was most unhelpful; the others were nice.
The whole hotel could do with a good coat of paint, hence "tired and distressed old lady".
Despite the kind restaurant staff we would not stay at this hotel again.
