December 2010

The Hotel bedrooms and public rooms are very spacious and the Hotel has lots of character features.

The central heating is very poor and we had to complain about the lack of hot water in our room (it was luke warm) and even though this had been rectified when we returned to our room at about 10:30pm it was luke warm again the following morning but to be fair, extensive refurbishment is being carried out at the Hotel and therefore we assume this will improve. We will stay again as it is very convenient for the Channel Tunnel and disregarding the central heating/hot water problems in general everything else was fine.

Friendly staff, ggod leisure faclities

Interior feels a little 'tired', could do with a general makeover. Restaurant a little sparse.
