Step back in time and savour the experience! This beautiful old hotel exudes history without sacrificing quality! Friendly staff, good food, superb mountain views all combined to provide a memorable time. In addition a quirky motor and steam train museum close-by along with the 10 minute ride in an old London double-decker bus with entertainment by the hilarious Johnny who later plays piano and sings in the bar. He says he only plays the black notes because its government policy!
I highly recommend a stop-over to relieve the stress of driving on the N1!
