Very old hotel, full of character. All staff we met were very helpful. The hotel was clean. We stayed in room 7, the only one with a four poster bed !! Room very pretty. The only downside was both the floor and bed were very creaky !!!! Guess thats what you get from such an old hotel with period furniture !! Room was also very warm ( even in March !!) our only window faced the indoor staircase and was sealed shut so we couldnt get any fresh air !!!! Also no seperate shower, but a shower head over the bath. The water was very hot .Breakfast was lovely and plentiful. The evening meal was ok. cooked and presented well but not a great deal of choice. Overall a nice stay, situated smack bang in the center of town within easy walking distance of bars, restuarants and clubs. I would go back !!!!!!!
