    Very tired rooms with poorly maintained decor. Toilet seat was loose. Bed was about 1 foot off the floor. Internet connection was slow. Continental breakfast offering was pathetic. A hotel living off its past glories.More

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
