Positive Reviews

Quality staff cares for this quality building

From the affable pastry chef to the reception staff, cleaners, and management; everyone gives the impression of feeling privileged to work in these surroundings. Certainly, they carry out their duties very efficiently and in a friendly manner.

Breakfast is a classic start to the day

Breakfast gets off to a good start because it is served in the ornate and relaxing lounge with lots of sofas and soft furnishings. The meal is also quite memorable. This is due, in no small part, to the freshly baked pastries which form an essential and delicious component. Breakfast is certainly impressive.

Staying here is an uplifting experience

Antique furnishings, ornate architecture, and wood panelled walls are a major part of the attraction when staying here. The interiors are found to be completely different to the run of the mill chain-hotel establishments of today. Guests are in awe of their surroundings. The one thing that really sticks in their mind, but not between the floors, is the old lift from, it seems, the 1950s. They love this and all aspects of their visit. Guests can't wait to return.

Negative Reviews

Cupboard-like rooms

Guests remark upon the small size of the certain rooms. They appreciate that these are dictated by the building’s original design. It seems there are some very spacious rooms but a number of rooms that are tiny in comparison. Guests accept that it is the luck of the draw. Quaint is a charitable description of the rooms, but cramped is a more accurate one. Guests just hope for better fortune when next they stay here.

Rooms are feeling a little tired

Some guests mention an air of tiredness in the rooms. Some things are fading and some expected services, such as a coffee maker, are completely absent.

Some comfort issues in the suites.

A few people reported some issues in their rooms such as hard beds, thin walls, problems with the hot water on the upper floor suites, and inadequate air conditioning.
