The previous reviewer said it "hotel in poor repair with elusive staff", but I must say that the three staff that we met during our stay were very pleasant and helpful and should not be put within the overall rating. Accepting that our booking information stated that one could not book in until 4 o'clock in the afternoon this is... More

No one on reception when I arrived. Had to go to the bar to ask to check in. Was shown to my room, given keys, told time of breakfast and left to it. Bed was lumpy. Room could do with redecoration, especially the bathroom. The next morning I couldn't get the shower to work. Water leaked from the shower hose.... More

We stayed here for just one night recently. We arrived mid afternoon and checked in straight away. We chose a cheaper room when we booked online, but even so the room could do with a little tlc. The whole place is lovely and old, crooked and creaky, but the room itself was decorated in a more modern style. We chose... More

Nice hotel with large, well equipped rooms in a nice location but the customer service level needs to increase a hell of a lot for it to be rated any higher than average. Laterooms stated check in was from 2pm. We turned up at 2.50 to be grunted at by the person who checked us in that we were early.... More

We came late in the night, hungry and thirsty after a long trip. We called to tell that we were late, and if the kitchen would be closed. "Yes" . we were told...but we could get some sandwiches! And indeed - we did. And furthermore we got a splendid welcoming by Kate. The hotel has such a nice atmosphere, and... More

It has the crooked quirk of a building its age, the standard of finish in the bedroom was ok, the bathroom was to a much better standard. The breakfast was plentiful (hot food and table service) but a bit slow to come. There was a problem with the heating on our visit which wasn't resolved, and we agreed to check... More
