I've been many times over the years for a drink and the new owners have really improved the lounge bar area and the service is good,prices not bad for a hotel.
I stayed recently and my only problem is the room, I feel it my duty to tell others.
Basically the kitchen extract fans are right outside the window with all the ducting,they run 24hours a day.No air conditioning and it's a small room, so in summer the windows have to be open.The television has to be on volume 31 to hear it.You wo'nt sleep but if you do nod off the fire door closing outside the room will jolt you back to life.It's room 116, if you get offered it,turn it down, it's that bad .Hotel's good, Room 116 bad.
