More very satisfied customers. We received a lovely welcome, tea in a pot brought almost instantly and good advice on somewhere to eat. Breakfast was delicious and kept us going most of the day visiting the Historic Dockyard. We were at a gig at the Wedgewood Rooms which are just round the corner. Perfect place for a short break.
So different from a chain hotel at a very similar cost.

As soon as arrived we were offered a cuppa. The weather was grim but the welcome great, and we were into some gorgeous decor with a lovely room all ready for us early. The staff are all consistent in their training and pleasant approach to clients, it's a hallmark of this chain. The breakfasts were a delight. We stayed four nights, room servicing was excellent. All in all a wonderful stay, highly recommended, Good Parking, Excellent Bar, FREE WIFI!

Room Tip: A couple of rooms on the ground floor if you prefer. A great Bar.

I chose this hotel from reports that I found in Tripadvisor, they were all correct, we could not fault the hotel, the staff were helpful with finding a restaurant for us, the breakfast was very god lots of choice.
Ideal hotel to stop for a night after a ferry trip from France.

I was staying for one night when on business in the area. From the outside, the hotel looks a bit nondescript , however, as soon as the door opens, your spirits rise.
The old Victorian house has been very tastefully made over with black wooden floors. I was given a warm welcome from the reception staff even though I arrived after 8pm and my bags were taken to my room.
Although tea and coffee making facilities are not available in the room, when requested, tea and coffee arrive very quickly - lovely coffee in a small cafetiere.
I had the small double room that has been discussed elsewhere and I loved it. Beautifully decorated and very tastefully accessorised - with lamps, mirrors etc... A very feminine room, I think.
The wifi worked perfectly. The bathroom was small but perfect, very clean with excellent walk-in shower with very nice L'Occitane toiletries. The bed was very comfortable and the hotel is in a very quiet location.
Breakfast was served in a dedicated lower room, the cooked breakfast was great, service was very friendly and efficient.
This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in.

Room Tip: Room Three is perfect for women travelling alone.

Surperb boutique hotel, with friendly, helpful staff and lovely rooms. Had ordered a bottle of Champagne to be waiting in the room as we were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and the hotel asked if I wanted a message to be left with it, which I thought would be written on a small card...however they had printed it onto an A4 piece of paper and laminated it, which made a lovely keepsake of our trip!

Would definitely stay here again...hopefully next time for more than one night though!

Clean well decorated friendly hotel. Room was large and double shower was a great idea. Breakfasts were well cooked though the non cooked choices are very limited. Staff were incredibly helpful and went out of their way to find us a decent restaurant.

Great service, great breakfast, very clean, and great public areas.
But we had a small double (no pictures on the website) small is right the room was full of bed and the shower room really shoehorned in.

So for us we didn't get the experience we hoped for - we had 1 night and that's all we could have dealt with in such a tiny room.

But its a lovely place - just make sure you know that the room you are going to is one of the spacious ones pictured on their website.

Room Tip: Avoid the small double - they are really cramped

Thank you for your review of our hotel. We appreciate the positive comments you made on our service and cleanliness - it's always great to hear.

We are sorry you found the "Small Double Room" small. We clearly advertise it as "small" to avoid those guests who need more space booking it. The room is still perfectly appointed with double bed, en-suite shower room, dressing table, wardrobe and bedside tables. We would like to make anyone else reading this review aware that all room photos are shown on the website - both prior to booking, during the booking process and then on the booking confirmation - at each stage of this process you can clearly see the photos and description of the small double room booked. There is also a particular tab labeled "Small Double Room" where you can peruse more photos of the room.

I note you also stayed at our neighboring hotel and also found the room small there so may we suggest perhaps speaking directly with a hotel prior to booking as they are always more than happy to assist in finding the perfect bedroom for your needs.

Once again, we appreciate very much the kind comments you made however would like to point out to all readers that the small double photos are clearly shown online, and that we label the room as small because it is exactly that.

Kind regards

All at Number Four.
