We had a family room for 2 adults and 3 children. Staying at the hotel for a nearby family wedding. In a great location for sightseeing. All the rooms I saw in our party were clean and comfortable. The building is over 500 yrs old. The floor boards creek, the walls are crooked which all adds to the character. It is a little tired decoratively, but it's passable. The camp beds for the two smallest children (8 & 10) were very poor quality however. They would only be suitable for a small child. Stayed Friday and Saturday night. Friday night was noisy with some late night revellers. The windows are secondary glazed, but this doesn't block the noise out. We all managed to get to sleep though. The breakfasts were wonderful. Plentiful, with a good diverse selection. The staff throughout the hotel were very helpful, pleasant and attentive. All things considered...we had a pleasant stay. If you're very particular and looking for perfection though, it's not the place for you. An establishment with bags of character, amidst a busy touristic area....you have to be realistic.
