After reading some of the negative reviews, we were a bit worried about staying at this hotel., particularly as it was a birthday gift from our children. However, the staff were very helpful and friendly, particularly Gillian who handled the breakfasts and the young man on reception who brought us an extra heater and blanket for the very cold night that we stayed. The hotel is perfectly located being close to the Lanes and Jamie's restaurant in the next street. It may have a few quirks but nothing that one wouldn't expect from a hotel of this age and character. If you want modern perfection then stay in one of the hotel chain boxes. But if you want the old charm and grandeur then this is the hotel to choose, especially as the rooms were at a very reasonable price.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
