This is a lovely, welcoming little hotel. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and were very helpful with regards to their parking issue. There wasn't much parking on site, but it's conveniently in the middle of a little market town... NOWHERE has much in the way of parking! ...It didn't take us long to find somewhere..
We stayed two nights in their superior suite, which whilst fairly small, was very comfortable and well equipped..(and typical of somewhere with that kind of history and character). There were plenty supplies (coffee and tea etc) the bedding and towels very clean. The decor was fresh and contemporary (recently decorated) and the bed was more comfortable than my own. The night was quiet, even when the hotel was fully booked.
On the second night we ordered steak, watercress and chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful! Our first breakfast was very nice (beautiful quality sausages and bacon) but the second breakfast was even better (mushrooms browned in butter! yum!).
We'd definitely go back. My only (very small) criticism was that the carpets were a little bit grubby and could do with a wash... a quick once over with a vax ought to do it!
