As far removed from the chains as you can get! A historic building, in a really great location. A smallish room, but this is what comes with being built a very long time ago.
We loved the dinner gong at 7.30 and all the guests sitting down to eat the same dishes together in the dining room. Home cooking along with lots of freshly cooked vegetables and tasty - just what we wanted after a long day on the C2C. Do ring ahead to check what the menu will be - I guess there would be an alternative if you don't like it. Good value wine list.
Friendly helpful staff and our bag had been taken up to our room. Other guests very friendly and chatty too.
