A little let down.
My partner and I were delighted when we saw the stunning façade of this hotel when we drove into the spacious car park . The hotel is situated in a superb location overlooking the Stray, just a short and very pleasant walk into the town centre. We were a little disappointed however, when we took the lift up to our room and we were greeted with the drab , modern brick landing area which resembled an eastern European tower block circa 1970.
The room itself was clean and well appointed , yet soulless compered with the older parts of the building . The main public rooms still appear to be fairly original however ,, being elaborately decorated with ornate mouldings .
The staff were pleasant and helpful, the breakfast however , could have been of a better quality, yet overall , we enjoyed our stay .Its a pity that a more sympathetic restoration was not carried out to this historic building. less
