I loved the reception area at the hotel as it showed character and hadn't had a makeover to match every other hotel.The rooms and beds were clean apart from some dust on an electric cable in the bathroom.
The cleaner was friendly and always busy in the morning but she can only work with what she has-the hotel needs refurbishing which would cost a fortune.
The other downside was that our room smelt of TCP.
We had room 23 which is a family room at the front.The views are great and we slept like tops.
The breakfasts are lovely with plenty of choice and served by a nice young lady.
The free secure car park was a plus and the kind receptionist told us that several pubs were nearby so we went to The Lady Hamilton which was nearest and did good food.
A most enjoyable couple of days touring the dockyards.
