1st comment - try to book directly with the hotel; we were told that if we’d done that we would have been offered a better price than via a booking site.
2nd comment - my rating is based on the things that made my stay enjoyable, not on the little issues that the hotel staff can do little to change.
The staff are welcoming and helpful, our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was plenty of hot water, the room was quite warm but soon cooled down when we turned off the radiators and opened a window. The breakfast was great - good quality products used in the cooked breakfast and plenty available. NB just take care when picking up the tea and coffee pots! Lovely looking items, well made and no dripping, but the handles got very hot!
We didn’t visit the bar, but in the summer I can imagine that a drink taken into the beautiful garden would be very appealing.
This hotel is in lovely old house, with many of the original features. Some of the decor is a bit tired and certainly not modern in appearance, but I thought it suited the house well. The windows in our room were not double-glazed (maybe it’s got listed building status), so there was some noise in the evening, both from the garden/bar and also through the door from other parts of the hotel, but nothing late or that kept us awake.
I’d happily visit again.
The photo is a tree in the garden, seen from our bedroom.

I recently stayed one night at this pleasant hotel as a guest of the University. It is easy to find, on the south side and slightly out of the city centre, and consists of a series of large period houses connected together and fronted by a more than adequate car park. The internal public areas are charming, clean and warm. To the rear there is an extensive garden, accessed via the bar, with plenty of tables and chairs to enjoy the space in warmer weather. Rooms vary in size and facilities. In mine, the ensuite’s fitments felt a bit tired but we’re in keeping with the traditional decoration of the room itself, which was comfortable. Breakfast was in the restaurant. The staff were friendly and efficient/attentive. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Impeccably clean room, top notch service, very good breakfast service. This hotel is well decorated and has a lovely comfortable feel, not 5 star but super all the same. Bathroom was faultless. It was a chilly day and the fire in the reception area was alight on my return - such a nice touch to welcome people back after a day out.

Visited here with my partner for a 1 night stay over Valentine's. Gorgeous building with decor style to match, really loved the authentic feel to this hotel. Really homely, comfortable, warm and welcoming. Loved the cute little bar leading out to the stunning and well groomed grounds with a couple of fantastic and interesting trees making it a pleasure to be in! Sunken hot tubs in the decked area...a real bonus treat! Staff couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. Good breakfast menu and a welcoming dining area to enjoy it in. Our room was perfect with everything we needed to enjoy our stay, clean crisp bedding and the bathroom was clean to a high standard with fresh linen and a gorgeously deep bath with plenty of hot water exactly what was needed! Just the right distance away from the city centre and it's hustle and bustle noise to be able to relax and feel like being in the countryside with the garden surroundings with a very short and easy walk direct into the top of the city centre. Already booked our return stay and will be making this a regular get away. Highly recommend.
