The hotel is situated in a great position, near the river and main thoroughfares also near good and varied restaurants.
However, the room I stayed in although labelled 'classic' meant for me that no works had been done on it for a while. Waste outlet plugs missing, tops of cupds dusty, fittings old. There was no shower curtain on the bath.
As to the breakfast for which they have the audacity to charge extra, consisted of 1 croissant, 1 roll, some butter and jam and tea or coffee and a glass of juice. The jam ladled out of a tin on one morning was clearly from the previous morning with the spoon sticky. When I ran a small guest house in London buffet breakfast was all part of the service, included, no extra charge, if you wanted it, it was there, if not you visited one of many local restaurants for a 'full English'.
The carpet on the stairs was dirty and threadbare in places with rubber nosings that were falling off and positively dangerous. Only one of the windows opened the other had been painted shut.
The new owner is a nice friendly guy who tries to be helpful but the place needs more work. So my apologies to him as I left at the weekend and didn't get a chance to say cheerio and good luck.
I still enjoyed my stay and was made to feel welcome and would go again as I prefer small friendly personal places to the big impersonal chain hotels.
Rates were reasonable for what I got I suppose but I probably wont get the chance to go back again as there are other cities to explore.
