Our bedroom and the corridors needed renovation and redecoration. Our bathroom had been modernised. There was confusion over the time of breakfast. The reception told us on arrival that this was available from 7.30 a.m., but the waiting staff in the morning said that breakfast started from 8.00 a.m. (They did, however, provide breakfast at the earlier time.)

Excellent staff throughout the hotel; extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Top notch breakfast and bar staff that know how to make a proper Irish Coffee. Rooms clean but tired; bed / mattress short.

Liked: Cleanliness
Good location. A series of characterful old buildings with lots of dark wood, some low ceilings, uneven floors and rickety stairs. Good range for breakfast, with excellent poached eggs. Pleasant staff who were holding the place together despite appearing to be rather under-staffed to cope with the number of guests. The heating wasn't on while we stayed, which meant one really cold morning, and nothing was done about it despite us mentioning this to the front desk. And the room wasn't ready on arrival even though we were more than an hour after check-in time. Despite this, we'd stay again, and hope that they manage to hire more staff and return the hotel to the levels of service commensurate with its history.
