Great view and some decent facilities but desperately in need of a makeover.
The view is delightful and the food is good and the service is solid and friendly.
The rooms are big too and the spa is ok.
That said, it really needs some love and care and some brightness. Now some people may challenge this as it is a typically English old hotel. However I am not suggesting to lose the character of the hotel rather make it a bit brighter and perhaps no carpets on the walls of the elevator? Also I would like to see pressure for the water in the shower and perhaps a wider menu (food is great though).
If you are booking the cheaper room be advised you may only get a view of scaffolding at the moment and the inner area of the hotel - not spectacular.
This aside it’s a has great potential and some wonderful character and a spectacular view in the restaurant area. Great for a night or two if you are solo, a couple or with the kids.
