Stayed here for the May Bank Holiday weekend. Arrived and found they have no car park, we were to park in any of the 3 nearby supermarket car parks (which has to be paid for). Had to pay all upfront before given a key - I haven't experienced this anywhere I've ever stayed before. No lift, so we had to lug our bags up @4 flights of stairs before getting to the rooms.
The room was absolutely tiny, one locker on one side of the bed and the wardrobe was on the other! Additional pillows on the bed had to put on top of the wardrobe as there was no where else to put them and I used the window ledge as a shelf as the small dressing table was taken up with the tea/coffee facilities. Only one person could "shimmy" around the bottom of the bed and if you were on one side of the bed and the other person opened the bathroom door, one person had to move out of the way. On talking to other couples staying there, they mentioned similar issues.
The bathroom was like it had been only put in as an addition so took away from the space in the room. If I'd been charged the full price, I would have thought it was definitely overpriced for what it was. On the plus side, the bed was VERY comfortable and I slept quite well!
The breakfast next morning I have to say was lovely, the breakfast room was nicely laid out, very homely and more like a B&B than a hotel. The woman serving breakfast was also lovely, couldn't do enough for us and offered us refills on tea, coffee and food. Couldn't fault the food either.
Bar staff were also very helpful, We left our room key in and they rang us to say they were closing the front door and to ring them when we were on the way back.
Overall, the place could do with a face lift, it is quite dated and things are worn, but the service and the food is very good and it is right in the heart of the city, so you are very close to all the shops in the town.
