This hotel depends if you like older hotels with character even though the facilities are not quite up to scratch. The hotel does a very good job given its age and you can stay here in comfort but 5 star it is not. Yes it is old with personality and you get a hot water bottle to go to bed with but the heating in the winter is poor and it is difficult to keep warm with a small electric heater. Most of the rooms do not have outside windows but the staff are good and helpful and it is probably as good as anything in the area.
