    3/5

    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Cleanliness

    Fascinating historical building, wonderful view of harbour from top floor restaurant, very helpful staff. But grubby throughout, walls, doors and furnishings particularly so. Food in restaurant uninspiring and overpriced. Second bedside cabinet and light missing in deluxe double room, only provided when I made a fuss at Reception, showing the photo of room as advertised (much better appointed!). Waited until 2.30. p.m. for room to be cleaned next day. Over time, became reconciled (resigned?) to the situation, and look back with some fondness, but only because of the personal charm of some staff members and the hotel’s undeniable character.
