Stayed here for 2 nights. It has been a really stately hotel some time ago but really needs some upgrading. We were on a room only basis and felt it was a bit expensive. We had to change rooms as the TV did not work.The second room was large but overlooked the main road. As I sleep with the window... More

Hotel is in a poor state,tired and need to come into the 21st century.Booked a executive room and ended up in the basement,room service took 4 hrs to deliver second towel.The breakfast was nothing to write home about.Booked for the weekend but left after one night.I would not recommend the hotel to my worse enemy.

The hotel is like a grand old lady,and with a bit of TLC would be a jewel in the crown with amazing architecture but you do need to take a step back and look around, the room that we were in was very clean and warm with sufficient tea and coffee ect ect, the food was good and plentiful and...

Now the coach firms (David Urquhart in particular) seems to be joined at the hip with Britannia Hotels This hotel is a Britannia hotel and has some glaring faults:- 1. The customer is always right. NOT the manger. NEVER the manager. 2. I... More

Read some bad reviews before we visited, but was pleasantly surprised. Grand Victorian building that could do with some uplifting in places but would be a mamouth task. We were pleasantly greeted. Room 303 on 3rd floor, very spacious, clean and comfortable, bed huge but a bit lumpy, fresh bedding, room service daily. Plenty of hot water. All meals buffet... More
