We had chosen this hotel from trip advisor because of it's location and reviews. In particular the gourmet restaurant which was the high point of our stay there.
The down side, and I emphasise a slight dissapointment rather than a reason never to return is that we booked their premium room but found it small with the space taken up by a king size four poster bed.
There is no veiw, except from where I slept I had a street lamp directly outside illuminating the room so the curtains must be closed, not a fault of the proprietor obviously but a consideration when setting the price.
Lots of hot water on tap and a large bath but the temprature when using the shower fluctuated constantly from very hot to freezing again an acceptable annoyance in itself at any hotel where you have to share water pressure but taken all together with a £95 (b&b) price tag, sorry but it didn't make the grade.
I would return simply for the food though, the restaurant was delightful staffed by very pleasant waitresses and the dishes we had were excellent. We had pre booked the two course option with our room but added the coffee bean ice cream and a lemon tart I would highly recommended them both.
Breakfast served in the same style was delightful rounding off our stay as a good experience
