Pleasant staff. Old hotel but nice refurbishments in the room.

Had the pre-theatre meal. Food was fine but let down by long delays between courses so it all became a rush.

Reception were very friendly and helpful, as were the restaurant staff at breakfast and dinner

The room I was staying in was really hot even though the heaters weren't on but opening the window was very noisy as there was some form of extracter fan outside
