We travelled to this hotel on 30th September and first impressions are okay. The Receptionist was quite helpful and we were booked in fairly quickly. We were taken to the lift and told our room number. On exiting the lift the corridor was in complete darkness. We had to grope around the walls to find a light switch whereupon you get a quite dim light in the corridor that is painted a dark "battleship" grey. It was most unwelcoming and depressing. The room itself was okay, quite small and the mirrored door to the wardrobe was cracked quite extensively. The bathroom had been recently refurbished, but did not have any towel rails. Lighting within the room was quite low and only one chair was provided (there wasn't room for another). However the room had two very large wardrobes. We did eat at the hotel on one evening, but this was an organized dinner and we didn't have any choice in the meal, so cannot comment on the menus. The meal was fine. We did have some problems in the bar as they staff kept on insisting that they had no beer. However, when several more of the guests requested beer they eventually brought a barrel up from the cellars. So they did have the beer but were reluctant to sell it! We were also refused a gin and tonic during the meal (which was requested because we don't like wine). Also after the meal we were refused milk for the coffee and tea, as the chef had gone home and it was locked up! It wasn't that late, only around 11.45pm.
I would say that we have stayed a better hotels that cost the same or less. However, it was adequate for a couple of nights, but it is unlikely that we would return.
