This hotel has the potential to be great - it has a wonderful location and the staff seem to have good intentions. What it lacks is polish. I made a booking for my father when he visited a few weeks ago, mostly because it is close to where I live. To be honest I felt embarrassed when we were showed his room. Whilst the decor is classic, the curtains are faded and tatty, and everything looks a bit tired. Maybe that's why there was such a lack of decent lighting - a vain attempt to hide the state of disrepair. It wouldn't take that much effort to press the sheets before putting them on the bed, but apparently that was too much to ask. The bed was also uncomfortable, the windows were thick with dirt, and the bathroom was basic at best (with particularly bad water pressure). I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you have very modest requirements. At least until they just spend a little money on the place.
Pros: Location, friendly and welcoming staff
Cons: The rooms
