We spent 3 nights here in a superior room (room 1). It was a very spacious room with a modern ensuite. Coffee machine and a good selection of drinks and biscuits were provided. Very comfortable king sized bed. Only let down by the curtains! Really is worth putting better

Thank you for posting your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for booking direct - our website prices are well below those of the booking websites which take a significant commission and I can place you in the best room according to your requirements. The curtains are light-weight black out curtains as the heavy ones we had previously acted like radiators and made the room too hot and I agree they are plain. The building has a preservation listing that makes it difficult for alterations to be easily done but we locate guests with mobility issues close to the first floor landing which has 14 steps leading up to it. We can provide meals in the rooms to help partly mitigate this. Hope to see you again

We arrived late and got a cute room up on the top floor with views of the main street. You sometimes find old hotels that are fresh paint on the outside but ultimately creaky and dusty and fighting the ravages of time, but not this one - clean and well presented the owners have

Thank you for your glowing review and we are glad to say that the new restaurant has now opened (No.1 Fleet Street) and while I would be biased the food is amazing! So hopefully see you again if you manage a day trip across to Gatehouse. All the best with your new project!
