    Really disappointing, can't reccommend

    This hotel is tired and jaded, 3* at best. I have stayed in a few hotels during Covid and I appreciate everyone is working differently but that doesn't account for the poor breakfast choice, dated décor and lack lustre service

    The hotel is very tired. Great location. Nice to have the pool but shame no loungers around it. Restaurant and bar service very slow. Unable to get a table for dinner our first night. At breakfast regularly had to wait 20 mins for a table and then 35 mins fo food.

    Hotel public areas very good. Original features kept a nice atmosphere. Bedroom EXTREMELY disappointing. Bathroom needs a good clean. Shower too small to use. Bedroom too hot and not able to open the window enough to cool it. Window overlooking a wall which was so close couldn’t see anything

    The Grand Perhaps Once Upon a Time

    Hotel Lobby area looks great upon arrival, check in was easy and the covid safety measures in place were very good. Disappointed that there was no parking onsite and we had to park in the station car park, despite stating online that there was free parking. The room was spacious but very hot. we faced the railway station so leaving the window open at night was very noisy and made it difficult to sleep. the shower hose was broken and we flooded the bathroom, reported it to reception and explained what happened we tried to mop up as best we could and left the dirty towels in the bath. we were assured the problem would be rectified upon our return. when we got back the problem had been sorted however all the dirty towels were left in the bath!!! on checkout day someone came to clean the room before we had even checked out. all in all i dont think the room was worth the monies we paid, i think the hotel relies on its previous reputation. could cetrtainly do with a make over in places.
