I stayed at this hotel, which occupies a super view over the bay. Although this hotel is 18th century and should be a spectacular historical building it is decaying inside. The décor throughout is dated and the paper is coming from the walls. The colour scheme is in your face.
Our room 205, had wallpaper coming off in both the bedroom and bathroom and had been temporarily repaired. Around the bath there was oodles of silicone on the bath panels. Despite a lovely power shower there was no hot water only lukewarm!!
Although our bed was comfortable I was shocked and surprised by the spring that was exposed and protruding on the side of the mattress.
The food served in the dining room was OK, served extremely fast. Toast was barely done. Imre our waiter was extremely attentive and friendly.
Entertainment was good on both of the nights, however the venue was extremely HOT HOT HOT!!. It was like being in a sauna. It may well be a money saving tip to turn the heating down and save some money!.
I regularly book hotel chain hotels for AGM and meeting functions, and have never ever come across a hotel chain that does not have a policy in place for alcohol to be served after the bar has closed, normally the night porter would do this, when asked by another guest he was unaware of any procedure being in place.
By law in England as a resident you may be served alcohol as long as you wish after the bar has closed.
I will avoid this leisure group.
