    The bathroom was overcomplicated i.e. shower & tiling looked unfinished in places but a comfortable room overall.

    What a little treasure this place is. Plush without being ostentatious or with illusions of grandeur. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, welcoming, and couldn't do enough to help. As a disabled guest (balance issues) the team guided me into the designated parking space directly outside the premises, then carried my bag up to my room with a smile then out again on check out. My room had all the comforts I could ask for, plus a couple of thoughtful extra touches not found in other hotels (a fan and a blanket in case I was too hot or cold) alongside the usual welcome drinks tray and biscuits, iron, hairdryer et cetera. Breakfast was divine! Good portion sizes and extras offered without charge such as the two extra croissants and the extra portion of muahroom and tomato with my Eggs Royale. This is definitely a hotel I'd recommend to family abd friends, it certainly did not dissapoint and was a joy to stay at.

    Our stay September 2021

    Lovely hotel, in a beautiful, prime location. All the staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful during our stay. There is a very nice restaurant on site and compliments must go to the chef. Breakfast was included and had a great selection which would set anyone up for the day. Stayed in one of the 3rd floor "loft" rooms, which was quite small but comfortable, well furnished and very clean. Only small negative to mention was that the walls were quiet thin and you could hear your fellow guests in the adjacent rooms quite clearly at times. However it didn't spoil or dampen our stay at all. All in all a lovely place to stay which we would do again and would recommend to anyone.

    Lovely decor, with a high finish throughout the shared communal areas. Old hotel so keeping the lift and stairs cases as original as possible was good to see. Great, attentive staff, who always greeted and chatted to us on our return from a day out. Lovely breakfast and wish we had also eaten a main meal there! Great bar manager, who remembered our drinks and would offer to repeat from the day before or accommodate any requests we had. Overall a great stay, in a good location. Definitely be returning soon!
