The things we loved - We loved the location and the historic feel to the place. The bar was nice and staff were friendly. The room was good, and the bed really comfy. We were there for the JazzFest and it was great being in the centre of things and although our room on the front was a bit noisy it didn't stop us sleeping, and it enhanced the experience. The pool was a great asset. Breakfast was really good with more than enough food to keep you going all day. Having free bottled water in the room was appreciated. Reception staff were lovely and helpful.
The not so good - Some areas need upgrading. The carpets in the breakfast room were worn and looked a bit grubby (dirty), a breakfast area really needs a more suitable floor covering. The carpets in the bar were also worn and dirty, but in a bar that's not quite so bad. Did not like the fact that people were allowed to smoke around the pool area. The toiletries and coffee supplies in our room were not replaced when used, we had to ask for more. Even after we had mentioned this at reception they still were not replaced on subsequent days. We were there for 10 days and it annoys me that you do not get a reduction for longer stays after all they do not change sheets etc every day, or do thorough cleans as they need to do when new people come in every day. So not replenishing simple things like toiletries and coffees (and the small biscuits which we only got on the first night) is irritating. On the last two evenings of our stay the aircon panel in the ceiling leaked. The first time it happened it was an inconvenience, these things do happen, but we did not expect it to happen again on the next evening. Despite these things, which could easily be improved by the hotel, we would stay again as the good outweighed the bad.
