This hotel was once a grand lady. Sadly it now needs to be refurbished substantially to regain its place, or it will continue to slip. The staff were terrific, courteous and fully trained, they seemed to enjoy their work. Our room #210 was not fitted with heating, cooling or ventilation apart from opening windows. None were really needed, but condensation...

The hotel itself had a strange...

Instead of bottles we were provided with a sachet of shampoo and a bar of soap instead of shower gel. There was no conditioner and hair dryer.
