We'd been to the exhibition at Houghton Hall and were en route to a wedding the next day, so picked this hotel as it was handy for both. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and offered to give us a hand with our bags up the very sloping stairs (but they are 400 years old). Our room was clean and bright with a hospitality tray. Other reviews have said you need to ask for the hospitality tray, but it was there. The bathroom was nothing special but clean and the toiletries were good. We stayed in the hotel for dinner and it was very good meal, in a lovely dining room with a decent wine. Again, very pleasant staff with the manager (or owner?) asking if everything was alright and was there anything we needed.
Breakfast nothing particularly special but it was perfectly adequate and my poached eggs were good and served promptly. We sat in the Atrium, but if you had to sit in the bar it could have been a bit gloomy for first thing in the morning. Wisbech is a lovely town that appears to be bit down on it's luck at the moment. That said, the hotel was busy and it was everything you want a decent hotel to be.
