Fine old building, but not as good as it was

Splendid old building.
Disappointed that tables in the restaurant weren't reserved for guests staying at the hotel. So we went to the Greyhound next door, which was excellent, the first night, and ate in the brasserie the second night (on our own, at least it was fast).
The car park at the back only has enough room for about a quarter of the guests, there is another car park behind the shops opposite but despite asking about parking they didn't tell us (or several other guests) about it.
At breakfast we didn't even get our cereals until after at least two tables who came in after us had finished, and the raisin floating in the milk for the coffee was a novelty.
The brochure in the room made much of the hotel's environmental policy, but the cleaners left all the lights on, they turned the radiators right up, changed all the towels unnecessarily, and the room had old style bulbs.
