Reminded me of being in Europe last year where we stayed in similar, historic hotels. The staff were very courteous. I stayed in the Gillies room which was very spacious . V comfy beds and v good Linen. A quick visit so no restaurant review.More

Great customer service prior to our stay. Excellent value. The room exceeded expectations. The bed was very comfortable and there was no noise from neighbouring rooms. Will definitely book again. Will ask to be further from the lift as it is a parisian style lift...More

Loved the grand feeling of the hotel, great location and a good selection of meals. Something a little different to your average stay which added a something special to an ordinary trip. Would come again.

Lovely historic old building, dark wood, tiled floors - a grand environment. Visit the restaurant occasionally. Today was for a colleagues birthday. The service was good and very fast. I hadn't expected it to be quite so busy mid morning. Beautiful muffins on this mornings...More
