Was classy, not any more.
From the 1930s to the early 1960s this was a grand, old-style, chic hotel. But it's grandeur has faded and now it is a very average hotel, with a great frontage and lots of old photos of very dated celebrities. Our room, a classic double was cramped and plain. There is a minibar (which we never use) but no tea/coffee facility, which we would have appreciated. Overall it's ok, but at the price (which was heavily discounted anyway) it was not great value compared to what is on offer in many other places.
