Not a great night
I knew the decor would be dated after reading the reviews but wasn’t expecting the other issues. I had a single room booked and yes the decor was dated but that was the least of my worries. The bathroom door handle was loose and door didn’t close properly, not a major issue as I was alone so privacy wasn’t a problem. No bath/shower screen so unable to have a proper shower unless I wanted to soak the bathroom floor. When I got back to my room at night the room was freezing cold and although I turned the radiator up the heating did not come on. It was on in the morning so must be on a main timer. Went to my bed at night and the bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. It was windy that night and the windows started to rattle which kept me awake. I had to stuff pieces of paper in the sides to stop them from rattling. Throughout the night I was woken with noises that sounded like squealing pipes possibly when the toilets from other rooms were being used. Not great if you are a light sleeper. I woke up more exhausted than when I went to bed. On a positive, it was generally clean and provided me with tea/coffee/biscuits. There was also some toiletries available in the bathroom. I think possibly this hotel would have been very grand back in the day but desperately needs updated with more comfortable beds. It’s true that you get what you pay for but I feel I paid too much for what I got in this hotel.
