Great Western Hotel
Nobody at reception, so I had to enter the bar area, which was like something from a Sheffield sitcom- bad carpets and drunk old men.
I waited for the barman to finish serving and provide me with a key. I was told my bedroom was on the first floor and lugged my bag up the stairs to that floor, which was also the storey with the pub toilets. The room was small with peeling paint, but generally clean. The decor was a continuation of downstairs- psychedelic carpets and flock wallpaper. However, it was near the station and cheap.
a great nostalgic experience
We enjoyed the experience and ambience of the old building and traditional oldy world bar .
The roon was tierd, but nothing a 'lick of paint' and some new furniture could not manage. We see the outside is being renovated I am sure if this work continues inside this lovely hotel can get a chance at being grand again. Staff were quite present the breakfast was very nice, a talented chef good at presentation
