Unfortunately unlike other reviewers we did NOT experience great staff service. Ingnored in the restaurant, after finally seating us they did not return for a drinks order for another ten minutes. Can not fault the food which was excellent, but the service was extremely slow,and no it was not busy, only two other tables. Weren't acknowledged at the end of our meal, seems all the staff had gone home ??? Same problem in the morning at breakfast. Disappointing.
The rooms are indeed old and tired but kept very clean. Unfortunately outside our door we kept tripping over discarded cabinetry from other rooms. After ten at night, which I don't consider very late, we had to use a back entrance as the foyer was closed. Very dark and uncomfortable 'sneaking' in by the back door. Could not recommend this hotel sorry.
