Hotel is looking very different from everything you might have encountered. Since the owner (charming.92 years old lady Smith) still lives there and the house has been in the family since 1936, it is invested with personal touch, decorations and soul. So the halls, stairs, breakfast room really look charming. But the rooms are quite ordinary, though spacious, and clearly overpriced. Besides we booked a room in March after having visited it, but when we went back in April we were given a different room, much less 'glamorous' and smelling of cigarette. When we complained we were given another room quite ordinary (more like a convent room). We were told the room we had booked had been occupied by someone else 2 days before our arrival! The next day we moved to the 'cigarette smoking ' room which had been refreshed and was more acceptable.
The drinking area was sometimes noisy but that did not affect the rooms. The food was ordinary. However breakfast (included in the room price) was really nice. All the staff was very nkind but the price is more for the atmosphere and common space decorations than for the rooms.
