The Faulty Tower Hotel
The Hotel is in a total shamble and should take it off your list, I think it should be totally closed redone it and the staff would have to go training as they are amateur...t should be downgraded as a one star hotel or Air B&B

Fine old building but a bit frayed around the edges. Food was excellent. Just an overnight stay so difficult to say more.
