Stayed for a couple of nights - our room faced a wall and was extremely dark. The lighting in the room was poor and it was difficult to see to read etc. the room although clean definitely needs to modernised. There was a canopy complete with crown over the bed and lots of heavy curtains and swags. Rather disconcertingly a clicking noise like a camera shutter was evident several times and our friends also commented on this in their rooms. We could hear the kitchen air conditioning unit and if we opened our window the smell of food cooking was unpleasant.
The food was very good - we ate in the restaurant on one evening of our say and thought it was excellent value for money. Wines are also reasonably priced. Breakfast was super and the staff very efficient. The 'remote control' piano in the bar area needs turning down or preferably off altogether - was difficult to hold a conversation because of the din.
All staff were friendly and very obliging although we weren't given an explanation as to why the fire alarm went off at 2 o clock in the morning.
If the rooms in this hotel were modernised it would be a big improvement - get rid of all these ancient beds and curtains - lighten the decor!
