This hotel is really deserving of four stars. The building is lovely and well located. It is clean and the general feel is warm and inviting. The room itself is nicely appointed, in a traditional manner. It drops a star due to the bathroom not being as nice as it could or should be for a 5 star hotel. It is not bad, but could do with just a little updating. The complimentary sherry is a very nice touch and the bed sheets are fresh and crisp. My only other negative would be the owner's apparent inability to read each guest's willingness to chat. I am not much of a 'morning person' and prefer to be left alone to quietly read my paper until I come around in my own time. My host, friendly and cheerful though she was, didn't seem to pick up on this as she chatted away to me at 7.30am. Still, better this than the unattentive type. Breakfast itself, which consisted im my case of simple bacon and toast, was good and plentiful.
Overall, it was a very pleasant stay and well worth the money.
