Chose the Duxton as have stayed here previously over the years. In it's day it was really up there but now seems a little tired and run down. The room was adequate (view good).
Everything seemed old and worn. Tv old and a bit "snowy", chairs and table old and very marked. Bathroom was probably the best thing in the room (very opulent in it's day and somewhat timeless)..now showing a few cracks here and there. It was a bit dirty too (hairs and a soiled cotton bud on floor).
Bed was ok with a nice mohair throw and sheets were of high quality.
We like the Duxton as it has a real Hotel feel with a bit more buzz than other places (Nice bar area etc). On this visit we felt a bit weiry of staying here again and wouldn't go back unless it had a makeover/renovation. It's location however is good and it could be really brought into the 21st century and redeem it's "good, quality, luxurious reputation". Hopefully this happen as it does have a lot going for it.
