Pleasant and efficient lady dealt with my telephone booking with no problem. Room clean and bright but like the hotel generally a bit tired. This is typical of many old majestic style hotels and as refurbishment would probably be very expensive somewhat understandable. Soiled faded carpets however do give a poor impression. Checking in was easy and efficient. The bar service was somewhat erratic but ok until we tried to order food. The till system had packed in and no food or drink orders could be processed. On enquiry as to whether a handwritten order could be passed to the kitchen and our room be charged when the system came back on was met with the bewildering response of NO then when pressed as to why, the response was I DONT WANT TO. We left and had a very pleasant lunch at a nearby hotel which I wont name here as I don't want this to appear to be a malicious review by a competitor. Generally though the service was good and helpful - the room rate was somewhat expensive but due to the local jazz festival being on probably reflected to laws of supply and demand. Some of the events were held in the hotel so it was very handy. The breakfast was plentiful and on the busy weekend morning was served buffet style and was fine. However the following morning with few residents the breakfast was individually cooked and expecting it to be much more freshly served was surprised to find it obviously had been sitting too long in the kitchen and was not very pleasant. So all in all ok but only just!
