We stayed here for a single night, ready for an early start working in the town. On our way we were delayed by severe traffic problems, rang the hotel and explained the situation to the owners, who were happy to leave a key and welcome pack for us when we arrived.
On arrival, the pack was waiting for us, as was our small but comfortable twin room with ensuite.
We slept well, although due to the age of the building and rooms, we did find (as is sadly common) that power points to charge mobile devices were few and far between, and none close to the beds.
In the morning following refreshing showers (probably aided by the hotel being at low occupancy in the off season) we enjoyed a full traditional breakfast, served by the pleasant and welcoming host in the basement breakfast room.
Overall the hotel has nothing that makes it stand out from any other pleasant B&B, but it has certainly been noted and added to the file of hotels we would be very happy to return to.
