Stayed for two nights in September 2020 at the point Boris stopped enjoyment after 2200 hrs!
The room we had was a four poster, but all drapes removed because of Coronavirus, which was fine. Very steep stairs in this historic building, which wasn’t a problem for us, but some may struggle.
Room was too hot, and difficult to open sash windows due to cardboard inserted in frame to prevent the frames rattling in the wind.
Condensation was a huge issue to the extent that the wallpaper was detaching due to damp, and the room smelt musty.
Bathroom wasn’t really that clean, and toilet flush was inadequate. Shower was only satisfactory.
Restaurant sadly stuck in about 1979. Menu was very old style, and given they could not provide a Rib Eye steak, as sold out at 1935, I ordered chicken which arrived dried up, and in presentation terms from about 1980. My wife’s salmon was overcooked, dry and dull. Avoid dinner at all costs.
Breakfast was partially delivered by buffet! A total no, no under Covid, and the hotel seemed to not be following the “Good to go” protocols. Food and drink not delivered on trays, no gloves for direct plate handing, and dishes with salt and pepper left on the table between customer seatings....... Very poor.
Car park is very tight. A standard large car is a difficult entry, and little guidance about where alternative parking is situated if the less than adequate car park, which has narrow markings, is full.
Handy for the Cathedral, and Market, but dine elsewhere...
