As many reviewers mention the High Street position is very convenient. Our room had good views of the historic examination rooms opposite. The private secure car park is a bonus- once one has negotiated the narrow entrance. Staff will retrieve cars if asked.
The hotel has history and a sense of it but is also slightly tired in decoration and furnishing. Our room/suite size was more than adequate.
The staff were friendly yet obviously professional. We booked B.B. and evening meal and at a most reasonable rate. Unfortunately the food was of mixed quality some good and some not well prepared. The staff were caring and responsive but very fatty lamb and warm salty ice cream could have ruined an evening. The restaurant manager was perfect in his response of apology and free drinks but the food should not have left the kitchen. Breakfast was much better and perfectly presented with an excellent choice.
We would stay again for the position and staff and in the belief that the kitchen situation was to be resolved.
