This hotel has magnificent architecture and is designed and built in the traditional Victorian railway tradition.
The entrance hall is served by a magnificent flight of steps to the reception desk. Whilst some locations are in need of repair the internal decorations are quite impressive.
Staff on reception, in the bar and in the restaurant are helpful and friendly. Breakfast is buffet style and substantial and the choice of evening meal is adequate.
Conference facilities on the ground floor were good.
Unfortunately this hotel does not have air conditioning! The sash window in my bedroom would not stay open and this made the temperature an uncomfortable eighty four degrees the discomfort could not be mitigated by a small electric fan provided by reception.
The hotel has free Wi Fi and is conveniently located next to the main line railway station.
