Stayed here after attending a wedding at the venue. I couldnt agree with the previous review more that the rooms are like something out of an Agatha Christie film. Our room 303 was ridiculously hot and was split into two section due to what looked like a supporting wall. When you came out the bathroom the area had 2 chairs and a small table in about 2 x 1 m area. To get to the bed you had to go down a narrow corridor which was really ridiculous, it was very unsociable especially having other people into our room as there really was no room for 2 people and our luggage. The decor was tiered with bad patch up jobs. the TV was seriously old, would probably class it around 1991 to match the phone. One of the pictures on the wall had slipped out of its frame. The shower head was too low for me(i am 5ft 11) and the mini bar only had 2 bottles of water in it - not what I would call a mini bar!
The lift didnt seem to work and for £150 you would expect to get a paper included in that but oh no, that was charged for on checking out. We were at a wedding at the hotel and the drinks prices were absolutely ridiculous. £5 for a bottle of Becks(exactly Becks!) and £6.25 for a glass of white wine. Breakfast was a real shambles, it was a buffet style and tables had not been cleared, there was no cutlery, clean cups, enough food and the staff were all over the place.
It really is sad, its a beautiful hotel with lovely period features but desperately needs money and some real attention spent on it. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and am gutted that I wasted £150 of my hard earned cash on such a place.
