Out at sea

The Midland Hotel at Morecambe gets some scrutiny from Phil Griffin.

A flavour is here:

The Urban Splash Midland Hotel might have felt more appropriate in the centre of a city. Five metres from the beach, it feels out at sea. If ever a building would have welcomed well chosen expensive period classic furniture and even the odd well placed 20th century antique, it is Oliver Hill’s Midland Hotel Morecambe. Walk through the ill-fitting front door – that must surely be a temporary measure – and see if you can find an atmosphere to drink in.

The full link is here.

I'm clearly more easily impressed by it than Phil, but then he makes his living from caring about such things.
