It really is a picture postcard of a typical quaint English Hotel. Set on the Market square in Wickham, it is a great location for just strolling around the town, but not too noisy at night (it is a very quiet town). Our room had a beautiful four poster bed (which by the way was incredibly comfortable), and although the rooms are quirky, they have everything that you could possibly want (tv, dvd, free wi-fi, en suite, alarm clock, tea/coffee making).
Add to this a simply superb breakfast (the sausage and bacon of top quality, and eggs cooked to perfection) in a wonderful conservatory dining room and you have the makings of a great hotel. It will not be to everybody's taste - it is old and angular rather than modern and functional, but I loved that quirkiness and old world charm. Also the restaurant (subject of a separate review) is one of the best places you could ever eat, so for anybody looking for a romantic retreat, or even business travellers looking for a break for the "chains", you should put this at the top of your list. Wonderful!
