“Meeting with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We stayed two nights at the Hotel. Our room had a four poster bed and was very spacious. The bathroom was a good size but would benefit from updating a little. We ate in the Kings restaurant on the second evening and the meal was excellent. The welcome at the hotel is very warm and they are happy to accommodate without question.

When we arrived here we thought what a lovely historic building. The receptionist was warm and friendly. Our room was spacious with a dressing room, but....we then found toe nail clippings on the carpet (yeuck!) and then a half drunk bottle of water by the chair. This was reported and apologies made. However, during our 4 night stay the bed was not made - just the duvet pulled across, bottom sheet not tidied. The bed was very comfortable and ornate - with a very thick layer of dust on top of the head board. With no air conditioning I tried to open the windows, eventually giving up and then having to wash my hands as they were so dirty. Free WiFi is advertised and indeed is the case, if you have plenty of time! not if you're trying to work. Impossibly slow. We dined in the Kings Room. What a lovely room - spoiled by stained carpets. Remove them and have wooden floors - so much more in keeping with the room. The food was lovely and well cooked, but the same menu became boring.Such a shame to see this lovely old hotel let down by poor housekeeping as the staff are so friendly and helpful.especially on reception.

Thank you to Jane and her staff for a lovely Sunday Lunch. The food was delicious and the staff were really helpful and friendly.
My guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I will definitely be planning a return visit.
I will also be recommending to friends that they visit for the Sunday Lunch.
Thanks again

We were a party of 8, the rooms were excellent, beds comfortable and plenty of room to chill out and relax. If access is a problem you would need to check when booking that stairs etc are okay, but not a problem for us, the narrow corridors etc in this historic building add to the charm and certainly don't prepare you for the spaciousness of the rooms. Staff were helpful, particularly the lady on the desk, helpful advice re local places, loan of an umbrella, wifi access etc. Breakfast was good, using excellent quality ingredients. Dinner in the king's room was fabulous, with 8 of us at a banquet table big enough for 12, excellent food and service, a very special family evening. I am a foodie, and I felt that the food was fresh, really nicely cooked and simple sauces and fresh veg which is easy to not get right were perfect.

Room Tip: If you struggle with narrow stairs, say so when you book. Also some rooms have showers that have acc...

We liked this one! Excellent location, lovely suite with dressing room as well as large bedroom, friendly staff, decent beer on the bar and a good breakfast and dinner experience. We did have problems with the internet and they did try their hardest to sort them out, but not totally, unfortunately. Would go back.

Stayed for one night for a friends wedding in July 2013.

First impressions were very good, the building itself is beautiful and they have made good use of the centre courtyard. The staff are nice although did not offer us help to carry our bags or show us to our room. Maybe I shouldn't have expected that, but I did.
Our room was lovely and very big, but there were a few minor faults with it such as ripped curtains/blinds, ugly fittings, dusty surfaces and lots of water residue on the walls in the bathroom. Quality of sleep would have been perfect if it wasn't for a ventilator thing on the outside of the building blowing/humming all night.

Breakfast was very good, held in the lovely function room they use for weddings. A good selection on the buffet and a nice cooked breakfast available.

Overall, very pleased with this place and would love to stay again. Recommend it to anyone, just bare in mind it is a tiny bit messy around the edges!

Room Tip: rooms that don't look onto the courtyard are preferred, especially if there is a wedding on. It...

Late spring bank holiday is not perhaps the best time to stay at a hotel specialising in wedding, but needs must. Room/Suite was good value. Booked breakfast (£7.50), a tad expensive but well worth the price. WiFi only operates around the reception area so if I had have been on a business trip I would rate the hotel a star lower.
Good staff, excellent setting though the stairs are steep and there are plenty of them.
Yes I will be booking again, as my mates like this old regal glamour to add to their trips to the flat part of UK.
