A wonderful hotel steeped in history. The staff are excellent, the food is great and the rooms are clean and quiet. I have stayed numerous times over the past ten years and I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting the area.

Our little dog was always welcome in the hotel but obviously not in the dining room. Ask about their very famous guest (a marquis) and his dogs!
