The Old Parsonage could not be in a more charming wisteria-clad building dating from the 1700s. Do not, however, accept a booking in room #1 which is on the ground-floor literally inches away from the car park. Additionally, the room smelled very musty, the bathroom was without heat and we were woken at 0800 by construction noise from the unit next door. We asked for a room change, which was granted. Apologies were provided but no other concession spontaneously offered. The restaurant operation is very busy and takes up most of the public area in the hotel leaving no lounge space for hotel guests. Yes, the location is great, the beds are comfortable, French press coffee is provided in the room, staff are courteous and the fire in the lobby area is cozy, although there's no way to enjoy it due to the busy restaurant custom. Overall, the Old Parsonage is jaw-droppingly overpriced for the level of amenities offered and the less than stellar cleanliness of the two rooms we stayed in. Others have no doubt had a better experience at the hotel, but I would never stay here again.
