“lovely old hotel”
Reviewed October 12, 2006

The hotel building is part of the Joseph Whitworth museum and the decor is in keeping with this lovely building. We stayed in the family/suite at the rear of the hotel that overlooks the park. It is a lovely large room very comfy bed with a seating area. The bedroom and bathroom still have the old victorianfireplaces in. The bathroom had a bath(which had quite a high side to climb in and out of) and over shower.
The food in this hotel is superb, the breakfasts ranged from boiled egg to large full english breakfasts, and as with all the food it was beautifully presented.
We loved the hotel although would have liked somewhere downstairs to relax, drink and chat, as the ground floor is given over to the restaurant. That said we are going back again in November .
We found a lovely friendly pub (The Square and Compass that also does DB&B.) about 10 minute walk from the hotel, and if the hotel was full we would have considered staying there instead.
