This is a great hotel: the exterior may not be lavish, but the interior is lovely. It was a joy to wake up in our large corner room to the glorious views from the windows. The service was always given with a smile: the dining room staff were particularly delightful. The food was wonderful and always presented with style. Do look at the back room connected to the main dining room which is particularly beautifully decorated and is, obviously, part of the original old hotel. (My only criticism is that the wifi did not seem to stretch to our corner room. I could only get it on the ground floor). Thank you to all the staff for making our stay such a great one.
