What a lovely hotel - it ticked all the boxes for a recent overnight stay with a friend plus dog. The staff were excellent - friendly and welcoming, and very keen to make sure we had everything we wanted. The hotel is comfortable, cosy and decorated to a high standard throughout. Our room was on the top floor, looking out over the street. The beds, bedding and towels were all top-notch quality.
We both enjoyed dinner in the restaurant - great local lamb and mussels - and breakfast was just as good. Excellent quality bacon and sausages etc.
The only minor niggle - I realise the restrictions of an old building, but the final staircase up to the second floor is narrow and the stairs have a peculiarly low riser and short tread. We were helped up with our bags because of it. However, I think it could be a bit more of a challenge for those less steady on their pins even without bags, I found it quite perilous walking down with the dog who was keen to be out and about!
Lovely stay, would definitely return.
