This hotel is full of character. The room was clean and comfortable (although the bed was a bit hammocky). There was a good shower and bath in the en-suite and lots of hot water. Breakfasts were excellent - buffet style, with beautifully laid tables. We also had a cream tea, which was delicious and, again, beautifully presented. We particularly liked the old-fashioned (but very efficient) lift. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Why would you stay at an anonymous, chain hotel when, for the same price, you can stay here? We loved it.
