Location is not enough
The room was very small and the blind was broken with a note pinned to it.
Not a great experience.
The paintwork on the stairwell was scuffed (easily remedied one would have thought) which gave the impression of general grubbiness.
The grouting in the bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been and the quality of the workmanship round the tiles near the floor was poor.
The shower was poor. The bed had been made up after the first night and glasses moved etc but none of the surfaces had been wiped, nor the carpet vacuumed. The bathrobe was in a heap on the bed. However, the room was a good size and the bed very comfortable and big. A fruit bowl with only 3 apples does not really constitute a fruit bowl in my opinion and it would perhaps have been better not to have one, unless this was ticking a box to say that there is complimentary fruit. The hotel did have its charm, being, as it is, a Georgian building. I expected more for the price.
