I suppose we love old hotels - my wife inparticular loves the atmosphere of this old, historic hotel - and its associated history re the No 10 Bar. The hotel wont be up to everyone's taste - it is an old Victorian Hotel - we do feel that Paramount are doing their best to upgrade and improve, but at the end of the day you can't make a C19th hotel into a C21st one! I think it's either a hotel you love or hate.
We have always found the hotel staff to be excellent -they really are a friendly bunch - and if treated with respect seem to 'chill' and 'respond'!
We have had excellent service in the past and have always written 'thank you' letters.
I suppose we love the atmosphere, the heritage and the general feel of the place (its like taking a trip back in time). No, there is not any entertainment, but none is advertised - and that is one of the reasons we chose the hotel in the first place!
The hotel is spotless (a recent undercover review on Holday Watchdog via the BBC back this up - I think) and all rooms at the front have been renovated.
'Suppose there is always room for improvement in any hotel, but we wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
PS: Did write to Paramount to complain re the parking charge and got numerous replies - still haven't had a good one, but we'll watch and wait to see what happens!
