Old world hotel in centre of town

Pros: Great rates including breakfast.
Cons: Would need a lot of money to re build the interior and that woul impact rates, so i think they have the right balance now.
Location: It's in the middle of town so a walk to just about anywhere.
Whilst no longer the major hotel it was in my youth, my stay at the White swan was comfortable enjoyable, because the breakfast was great and the staff were friendly, helpfull and courteous.
