We had a great time here. Nice and central with fabulous rooms. The staff were amazing - nothing was too much trouble. They even gave me breakfast a bit earlier when I had to leave for a train in the morning. The breakfast was wonderful with great staff and the main bar is cozy

"Many stairs, ask for room on a lower level, many level changes in this old building makes getting round if older or disabled a challenge."
