    This hotel had character and the decor matched the age of the building which retained many original features.We lliked the fact that there was free parking.The views were also outstanding from it's elevated position. Overall we rated this hotel good value for money.

    The only issue we would pick up was the fact that the bedroom and bathroom could have done with been warmer.Our room had a large bay window which attracted the cold.An upgrade of the heating system is overdue.

    It was located where I needed to be for the following day.

    I was in room 302 - great view!! I have stayed in this room before (about 6 months ago) and had to be moved as the room smelled of vomit. Unfortuntately, the room still smelt faintly of vomit. Had to keep the window open slightly to keep the air fresh in the room. The menu selection for room service is limited and does not change.

    The hotel is in a good situation with complimentary parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good ( did not eat dinner in the hotel). The room was well furnished with a nice view.

    The bed was rather hard and the pillows very lumpy.
