We had a standard room which definitely had seen better days. Rather shabby but beautifully comfortable king size bed.
The public rooms are similarly faded but are very comfortable and the wood fire in the hallway was a delight.
My main point of complaint would be the seeming lack of staff training. All the staff were very polite and friendly but this bills itself as a four star hotel. The basic 'serve from the left remove from the right' was completely ignored and overall service was quite amateurish. Substituting mayonaisse for a chili dip was rather silly although the quaility of food at dinner was very good.
Not so at Breakfast - my poached egg and bacon was delivered swimming in water and the bacon was very tired with a cardboard texture - definitely cooked at least an hour before service and then kept warm- similarly the toast was soggy and not crisp. This is not 4 star standard at all!
I would stay here again mainly because there is so little good accomodation in the area.
