We went to a wedding in this hotel and stayed overnight. This was formerly a renowned hotel and is has a good history although it was mentioned to me that it didn't have previous standards recently.
First of all I must mention that the staff were kind, friendly and helpful, but unfortunately that is where the complements end.
The food at both the wedding and breakfast was appalling. Even the coffee was weak and tasteless. We had a cappucino the following day as well and both of us did not go beyond the first sip. We were not alone in our comments on the food at the wedding, it was like stuff you would get from a packet.
The decor is outdated and becoming run down and unfortunately it is a hotel that is struggling with the tough economic situation. It has potential, but looks as if it requires major investment to bring it to bring it anyway close to former glories.
