It's as if this hotel is a work in progress which is surprising due to its history - Smells very damp and the decor needs a major lift as do the rooms which are exceptionally basic. This was very disappointing. Facilities in rooms, shower, toilet, carpets, beds and storage ALL need improving. Then as a paradox you go for food in a modern, well presented restaurant which has amazing food! A real dilemma to suggest folks stay here - the place was full of Groupon deals and everyone raved about the food and 'accepted' the conditions because of that. I dont share this, the place needs an upgrade and to get rid of the overpowering smell of damp and decay.
