Unfortunately the first sight that greeted us on arrival were some drunk guests and two massive urns at the entrance overflowing with cigarettes, fag packets, empty beer cans - delightful. The staff were friendly and helpful, but the rooms were not especially clean (one of us had dirty cups on the windowsill, and seriously need a makeover - the bathroom was dire. One pal suggested faded grandeur, but I thing just faded.
It's redeeming feature was the food. The bar meals are great although the menu is massive and needs cutting right back. And breakfast in that amazing room was great (although the porridge was rather watery). Very welcoming to cyclist which was a bonus. Not a bad experience but not very good either - somewhere in the middle. It could be a fantastic hotel though - a great setting and building - just needs some money pumped into it, some thought and attention to detail.
