Beautiful Old Hotel
Great location and a huge room. Just be aware that it is an old building and you need to get used to the creaks and thumps from the floorboards above you if you are on the ground floor.

Grand Old Hotel
A very pleasant stay. This hotel is in the tradition of grand hotels of yesteryear. Our room was delightful, furnished and decorated tastefully in keeping with the general atmosphere. The public rooms were oak panelled and similarly furnished. We had drinks in the bar for happy hour and enjoyed a very pleasant and reasonably priced breakfast from the a la carte menu. Service and cleanliness were excellent. This is an excellent hotel and is currently very good value for money. Highly recommend.

Grand old experience, always love staying in the old part of the hotel. Hot pool is steam heated water - I wish if they offer mineral option - for the skin!

It's a classical Victorian era hotel and has amazing character as a result. Princes gate has a nice combination of rustic charm, Victorian opulence and modern amenities.

Nice bit old of history
The room was small with a big bathroom. Nice old building with the typical plumbing noises when you stay on the ground floor. Enjoyed the stay, the food in the restaurant was excellent, great location, handy to everything.
