My wife and I stayed one night en route to a week's holiday in the Isles of Scilly and three nights on the way back - and it was one of the best hotel choices we've made.
Excellent, friendly service; spacious. well-dresssed, clean rooms; great breakfast menu and top-notch evening meals; good bar with cocktails on offer; first-class city centre location. All presented in an interesting, handsome period property.
With hindsight, perhaps a tad too much enthusiasm for muzak? But that's a personal bete-noire, others don't seem to mind. Other than that, absoutely no fault to find.
Overall, wonderful: this has to be one of the best small hotels in the UK.
