New furniture

New furniture in the entrance to Haigh Hall, I don't know what's happened to the antique elephant leg table.

Arggg my eyes. Hideous!


Comment by alan on 28th November 2016 at 00:51
That is horribly tacky !


Comment by Iinda massa on 28th November 2016 at 06:39
That is so cold and unwelcoming.


Comment by kath on 28th November 2016 at 08:44
well I wonder who came up with that colour scheme?


Comment by Den s on 28th November 2016 at 09:17
Ridiculous.


Comment by Gary Leece on 28th November 2016 at 09:17
It resembles part of a modern American church organ, or German modern art.


Comment by Garry on 28th November 2016 at 10:02
Horrible colours.


Comment by Anne on 28th November 2016 at 10:32
Those pipes look just right for pushing ciggy butts down.
Horrible setup.


Comment by irene roberts on 28th November 2016 at 10:50
A friend of mine went into Haigh Hall recently and said it looked cheap and tacky, and other visitors agreed. I think the new owner should have gone to Specsavers.


Comment by Pat on 28th November 2016 at 10:58
OMG! How awful!


Comment by Carol on 28th November 2016 at 11:09
Yeuch!!


Comment by Mick on 28th November 2016 at 11:14
I think the very glamorous Wigan brides who will be using it will love it.


Comment by Mavis on 28th November 2016 at 11:27
OMG just looking at the photo that is terrible, will have to go up there and have a look, cant imagine where that is in the Hall, hope it looks different when looking at it from the staircase.


Comment by Maureen on 28th November 2016 at 11:36
Tastelessness at its best.


Comment by Vb on 28th November 2016 at 13:52
All the money in the world can't buy taste - sad to say it looks like a Barbie salon! If the Hall is haunted I'm sure the ghosts will depart now!!! On the other hand if the owners are happy.......!


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 28th November 2016 at 13:59
I think it's great. In fact, the last time I was round at Ray Charles' place, I seem to recall he had something very similar.


Comment by Den s on 28th November 2016 at 14:38
Good grief! That table looks like something left over at the end of a Car Boot Sale.


Comment by Neil Cain on 28th November 2016 at 15:20
Well Mr. Baker you seem to have everyone onside with this.


Comment by Vb on 28th November 2016 at 15:52
PS Mick I think the elephant leg table 'hopped' it quick!


Comment by David on 28th November 2016 at 15:59
Let's hope that they do a better job with the rest of the hotel :(

Mick have you sent a photo into PAD of the equally horrible new car park that they've put in front of the hall?


Comment by Derek Platt on 28th November 2016 at 16:14
I agree with everyone that it is awful. I would add with respect that it was probably a woman that was the designer. It doesn't look very manly.


Comment by Pat Mc on 28th November 2016 at 18:24
The cost of this redecoration will doubtlessly be passed on to the paying guests and probably push up the hotel room prices by at least 20p a night.


Comment by Andrew on 28th November 2016 at 19:24
Looks like a sympathetic renovation.

Thanks for sharing, Mick.


Comment by Maggie K on 28th November 2016 at 19:33
It does not fit the building. Like most of the others have said - bad taste. What have they done with the lovely staircase that you enter from this room. I also wonder what they have done or will do in the rooms with the magnificent ceilings. Can't understand why Wigan Council have not insisted the inside of the hotel is in keeping with the building.


Comment by Den s on 28th November 2016 at 20:49
Are they hoping to attract the "Rough Sleeper" trade?


Comment by prue on 28th November 2016 at 22:41
Very modern and up to date, nice colours.


Comment by Garry on 29th November 2016 at 11:35
Some people have no taste!!!


Comment by prue on 29th November 2016 at 20:46
Some people have no manners, everyone is entitled to an opinion.


Comment by Bill Eatock on 30th November 2016 at 14:49
Minimalist and modern. The younger generation will love it. I expect its the younger set that they want to attract.


Comment by Vb on 1st December 2016 at 10:41
Yes it is a young person's style of decor which wouldn't be out of place in a private house. That said it will be out of date in 18months if not sooner! The style doesn't do justice to the Hall which is historical and should have been treated as such in a more timeless fashion ....perhaps with a slight contemporary twist -not full blown and in 'your face' shocking pink!


Comment by Christine on 3rd December 2016 at 19:32
I love it. Modern and fresh. Not fuddy, duddy, stick in the mud, brown!
