This large hotel obviously appeals to the more mature guest and when we stayed there was large contingent of seniors in evidence.
The hotel is large and has heavy wood panelling throughout. The prices for food and drinks are reasonable and the guest is not called upon to pay grossly inflated prices as is so often the case in this type of establishment.
The hotel clearly caters for people who are keen ironers. Our room had an iron and full size ironing board in the wardrobe. In the event that further ironing facilities were required there was another half-size board affixed to the wall just outside our room complete with wall mounted iron.
There are lifts in the building although they are very slow – in fact ours took so long to ascend two floors we thought that it had broken down. We realised afterward that this is probably to allow time for the occupants to iron a shirt or two between floors (despite no on-board ironing equipment being evident).
The staff were helpful although several of them do not have English as a first language. Our dinner and our breakfast were both very good and nicely served.
Despite the Eastern European influences the hotel has quintessential Englishness and offers a comfortable stay at reasonable prices.
