A lovely place about a mile and a half away from the city centre. Well within walking distance. The hotel has an ‘olde world’ charm bringing with it an air of peace and quiet. The room I stayed in was large and accommodating. The breakfasts individually prepared and very tasty and satisfying. The staff were attentive but discrete. Overall, this is a nice place to stay and would recommend it to anyone.
