Stayed at this hotel with my husband for our wedding anniversary. I used to pass the hotel daily when going to collage & never thought I could afford to stay there, but a Groupon offer came available at the right time.
First impressions are that the hotel looks a bit old from the outside, but inside is great, the staff were very friendly, but the lift was a bit on the small side.
The bedroom was quite large, it was clean & brightly decorated, the bed was very comfortable but I did not get much sleep.
As kids we heard the hotel was haunted but just laughed about it as we never believed it, but now I know different. I woke at 2am there was a ticking sound but no clock, I thought it was a dripping tap, but no, the sound seemed to be coming from 2 different side of the room but there was nothing there. I then heard faint knocking sounds coming from the walls but my husband was sound asleep so I told myself it was nothing & tried to go back to sleep. I dozed for a little while but then heard a noise outside in the corridor it sounded like an elderly person slowly dragging the feet, I heard the creak of the nearby step & the footsteps continued until they reached the bedroom door where they stopped. I thought someone may have got the wrong bedroom, but they did not try the door or move on. Eventually I gave up listening & snuggled up to my husband & fell into an uneasy sleep. It was just a strange experience a little unnerving but not really scary, its just an old hotel perhaps some of the staff never left.
Breakfast was hot & plentyful just what we needed to start the day, but the best thing about it was we were allowed to enjoy it in peace, the waiter was there in the background if we needed him, but did not keep asking if everything was ok or try to take the plates before we were finished.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone as we had a good time there.
