Lovely building and location, dissappointing room

I stayed here for one night in June on a business trip. The hotel is centrally located and is a beautiful buidling but I felt that my room was in the land that time forgot. It was very old fashioned,lots of old carpet, generally not pleasant, some unnecessary carboard space. Only a single bed. Bathroom equally tired.n Needs a complete revamp. I ate in the adjoining restaurant which is owned by the hotel - went in the afternoon and ordered avocado on toast. It took ages to order, ages to come and the toast was completely cold and soggy when it came and pretty unappetizing. It was hard to get a waiter's attention and it was pretty much the same at breakfast the next day.
