We stayed in this hotel at the beginning of the week. The reason that we are disappointed and confused is due to the complete contrast between the standard of the room and the standards of the lounges and dining room. The executive room we had was excellent! The room was modern and fairly large with a great bathroom and a lot of thought had gone into the design and comfort of the guest. However, the lounges and dining room have not been updated for numerous years and this is what I find confusing. Yes, it is a grade two listed building and old charm is nice, however, the lounges and dining room remind me of something out of the "50's". Their was no atmosphere and the chairs were so old and lumpy that we did not want to linger in the bar after our meal but went straight back to our lovely room which was a great shame. The restaurant needs some subdued lighting rather than the bright overhead lights, this would create a more intimate dining experience and would make diners wish to linger over their meals. On the whole, for the price we paid, we would not revisit until a revamp of the dining and bar areas were completed to the standard of the room we stayed in.
