Overall I felt sorry and sad - the hotel is that breed slowly being pushed out by the multiples offering a standard room - so it is a choice of modern simplicity against olde world charm but feeling a bit past it.
The hotel feels it age - even though the ground floor has clearly been decorated in a rather old but fussy style - but the bedroom felt tired. Took a long time (i.e. next morning) to work out how to use the television (it is controlled by switches near the bed head). The room was cramped but remembering it is an old building then we were not disappointed and feel that criticism has to be put into context of what we were paying and its history.
We did not realise they did evening food - did not see any menus and was not mentioned when we arrived - thought the closed area was the breakfast room.
Bit shocked on arrival to find that they had writen my full credit card number and other details (that I had give over the phone when booking that morning) next to my name in a booking in diary in the unstaffed, open reception area!
Taking the hotel for what it is - then we were both satisfied - and it was good value
