It's got a really nice old charm to this hotel. The smell of cigar smoke from the Havannah bar adjoined to the hotel also makes you feel as if you are stepping back in time. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. There is a lack of good English language TV channels.
Stay away from the mini bar, it's a rip off. The only complaint I have is that the walls are very thin and you can hear doors closing and people talking in the other rooms, so not a great place to sleep in a little bit to relax in the mornings.
The highlight is going into the Havannah bar and having a quick drink just to absorb the atmosphere (not too much of the smoke) as it's a culture that the UK used to have and does not have any more. I am a big believer of the smoking ban in public places in the UK but there is a really nostalgiac feeling of stepping into a bar with smokers and imagining you could be in the 20th century again. If you are a cigar smoker then you are in heaven as there is a tiny cigar shop within the bar where you can select some of teh finest cubans.
