Room was outdated for price, lampshade broken and desk backboard broken. Room did not get serviced when we had got back to room at 3pm and had left at 9am.

Loved the old lift. Room 106 was very warm. The heat pump was on when I arrived. I had to turn it off and open the windows. The room was comfortable.

Handy location and at a good price. Was noisy on my 2nd. night due to a school ball being held in one of the conference rooms. My room had a musty odour and there was no opening window to air.

Found the antique lift a bit of a cold draught from the past. Could do with a more efficient solution to preservation of our heritage!
