Really lovely place, situated in a nice area with good restaurants around. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. Rooms are awesome, breakfast is lovely and everything is really clean. You have your own waterboiler with tea and coffee. Possibility to buy wine and water for a good price.

beautifully remodeled rooms with luxoury bathrooms, very competent and reliable service, nice common space to prepare tea/coffee or get a drink. About 2 km to downtown with very nice walking through park.

I stayed for six nights in August and cannot say enough good things ... the wooden-floored room was large, elegant and comfortable (and especially after I worked out how to use the heating on a cold winter's night and discovered the underfloor heating in the spacious bathroom); every member of staff with whom I dealt went out of his and...

It will not take a lot to redo the walls around this room and to replace the shower door and give the shower grout a good scrub. The carpets also need to be... More

In winter, in very cold days, sometimes, hot water take time to reach rooms...a bit of patience would help. I personally advised the guest to run water for few minutes and later checked with guest , if water was... More

Having stayed at Dunkley 5 weeks earlier we decided to return as we knew the accommodation was very comfortable, the staff most competent and eager to please, and the location convenient and central. And of course the breakfasts are first class. We would certainly recommend this establishment.
