After having our wedding reception here 22 years ago and approaching 50 we decided to return for a treat.
Little had changed apart form a few new carpets perhaps?! We were given a room along the side of the hotel which overlooked Henry Tudor House - quite a noisy bar but we coped with that. Lots of creaking floorboards in our own room as well as the room above, but you have to expect that from such an old hotel.
Breakfast was served in the room we had our reception in all those years ago so that was nice and the cooked breakfast was good.
Room was small, but suited our needs, but I do think the 108 quid is quite over priced. I am not sure if the owner was in the bar - hope he was cos he helped himself to a beer from the bar, but if he was I thought he and his family were out of order hogging the open fire! Oh and the recycling bin being moved over the cobbles at 06.20hrs didn't help sleep quality!
Towel rail not working in the bathroom, which I reported.
All in all and ok stay and Ian am glad we finally did it.
