The hotel staff were pleasant and very friendly when we arrived and check in was prompt.
The room was very clean, with a large wardrobe and plenty of coat hangers, a desk, a hairdryer and plenty of refreshments and biscuits. The bathroom was very clean if a little tired, peeling paint above the shower over the bath. There was a standard size double bed.
While we were unpacking there were very strange, loud noises coming from beneath our room as well as what sounded like doors frequently banging. The noise, similar to a vacuum switching on and off, as well as the banging doors continued all the time we were in our room .
We decided to have dinner in the hotel restaurant and found it to be very welcoming with a pleasant ambience.
There was an extensive menu and we both decided on steak, cooked rare but they were both overcooked, Nonetheless, overall the evening was very enjoyable.
When we were about to retire we asked at reception if the noise below our room would stop during the night only to be told it would not as it was an electric pump in the mens toilets which were directly below our room. We therefore asked to move to an alternative room and the gentleman on reception was very helpful, most apologetic and gave us the key to another room without hesitation. The second room was much larger, had a huge bed, and a larger, more modern bathroom which was also spotlessly clean.
The bed was amazingly comfortable . The room was very warm but we were able to open a window and even though the room was situated above the outside courtyard and seating area we did not encounter any noise or smell of smoke.
Breakfast was served until midday although we were informed when we checked in that the continental breakfast would be cleared away by 10 am.
We arrived around 10 am and were pleasantly surprised to find there was an excellent contintental breakfast bar still available to us.The waitress was very efficient, friendly and helpful.
There was also an excellent breakfast menu available. My husband ordered the Full English and I the toasted ciabatta with ham, cheese and poached egg which was delicious.
Would definitely stay here again.
