The holiday was excellent. We were all made so welcome by the staff. The food was extremely good and the room was large and comfortable. Everything was spotless. And we are talking about when we can go back and enjoy the comforts once again

Wow, from great reviews to a poor review. At least we are human and cannot satisfy everyone. Your stay was for one night on a Saturday. In response to your review I will respond to various comments. You state that this is a old & well worn hotel. I fully agree, it was built in 1860, almost 160 years ago... More
