A step back in time.
We had the only suite in the hotel - it was superb as was the price. Breakfast was excellent. Car parking could be a problem.

Pre Christmas get away
We had a lovely relaxing 2 night stay. Our room was clean, cosy and warm. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding top quality. It was our anniversary and we were provided with a complementary glass of sparkling wine each which was a nice touch. The restaurant staff were attentive and friendly. The only negative to our stay was checking in. The receptionist was obviously tired and it felt like we were a bother to her.

Wanna have breakfast under 1000 year old beams (been tested) then you are there! Waitstaff and all folks there were fantastic! Superb room and great food. Perfect town. Lucked into a local market day. Fantastic lamb-related adorable stuff shop in town. Great.

Great hotel, no reception
Beautiful room and charming hotel. There’s no reception and you have to check in at the bar which was weird and a challenge on a busy night with all our luggage. But otherwise great
Sam, gb2 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
COULD be really great
4 stars, could easily be 5. Lacking in the little details that makes somewhere REALLY good. We had a beautiful room, room 9, but just let down by little things the hotel could easily fix. It might be pedantic but when your paying over £150 for room only for one night I don't believe it's unfair. Cons No clear indication of where to check in (there's two entrances) got sorted at bar. Room had stains on the carpet that I'm sure could be cleaned better. Lovely slipper bath in room but no dressing gowns, and two large candle lanterns next to it to make it romantic, but candle hadn't been replaced in one and no matches for the small bit left in the other. No lights in corner of room where the dressing table is, made it very hard for the gf doing her make up. One of the windows doesn't shut properly so added noise from street outside. Toilet seat needs refitting Lock on toilet door doesn't work. Pros Extremely comfortable bed and pillows Great location. Lovely decor Friendly staff. All in all, I wouldn't put anyone off staying there, I just wouldn't with all the other beautiful places in the area that would be 5 stars.
