Liked: Staff & service
The Hotel is being subtly transformed into something closer to its former grandeur. Its still a significant way off. Its tired and basic, but improving. The facilities are basic but functional and the staff are traned, helpful and polite. The location of the building is the best in town, expecially if you're there to sample the culinary delights on offer. In general, I recommend staying at this property. If you can, book a family room.
