This hotel feels a World away from modern society and I loved it. This hotel is set on the main street of the small Herefordshire own of Ledbury.
It is English eccentricities at their greatest. The Book Club meet on a Tuesday and the Rotary Club on a Wednesday the sign tells you on the door on the way in!
The hotel has uneven floors, creaking floorboards, wooden beams and small knooks and crannies everywhere.
The greeing from reception was warm and friendly and I was even offered help to my room with my bags.
My room was small but well equipped, with of course the floor angled uphill toward the bed. The mattress was a little soft and felt like a hammock, but at least it had a canopy over the bed!
The bathroom was small but well equipped with a powerful shower.
At around 6pm every night a chamber maid comes round and asks if you would like your bed turning down (the sheets anyway), which again was most refreshing!
The breakfast was OK, with an exceptional cooked breakfast but a little disappointing cereal buffet.
The bar had a welcoming atmosphere and served good food and drink if a little expensive. There were also open fires and comfortable chairs all over the ground floor.
The hotel also has a leisure club although I did not venture into it, as I was too busy people watching and enjoying the comfortable surroundings.
This is a great hotel to stay at for a true English experience so rare in this Multi-Cultured Society we live in!
