I liked the period decor of function/dining room and staircase area. However actual room was neglected. Damaged wardrobe, no bedside lights for reading. Poor tv reception and limited channels

We love these old hotels and we stay in them because we don't want to see them go. Yes, its a bit dated, with our room a testament to a 1970's renovation (polystyrene ceiling tiles and metal shower tray anyone?), but the room was clean and comfortable. It has recently changed hands and the new owners look set to improve it over time.
