We are fairly frequent visitors to dine at the Witchery but on this occasion we stayed overnight in the 'Inner Sanctum.' (Restaurant review separate.) From the moment we arrived until we left the service and the staff were first class; friendly, willing, and professional. The suite (one of seven I think) was fabulous. Filled in deep red and split into three separate rooms, it reeked of interest and fascinating history. We entered the suite into a study type room and off on each side were the bathroom and the bedroom, although the latter was rather more with a raised small dining area where breakfast is served, and a working coal effect gas fire, with a setee, chair, and tv area. A Bose stereo was tuned on Classic FM for our arrival - a nice touch and in keeping. Rather un-nerving for my wife, a large bust of Queen Victoria dominated the centre of the room and I found my shirt draped over it in the morning. The suite was full of interesting pieces of furniture and other items. Everything was just right. Any down sides? Well the plumbing and the water pressure was a bit quirky but if you want everything to run firmly, steadily and clinically, then choose one of the new modern souless places to stay. Not a fabulous sixteenth century building at the top of an ancient hill! We will do it again.
