I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The staff were very helpful and for my needs and was perfectly located. Its a large hotel with many levels but has a lovely charm and lots of history. The bar area is well serviced and plenty of variety with the food menu.

there was no light in the shower, the shower faucet was difficult to maneuver, so i had to bathe in very hot water. I had to follow a guest to get to the breakfast area, bacon was hard, coffee was not hot.

Staff was so wonderful - very helpful and responsive. Making arrangements by phone and email was very easy. The conference facility was perfect for the size of our group and the staff was very efficient. All the food and snacks for the breaks were quite good.
