Really great hotel, excellent location right in the centre of the town. Looks charming from outside and this continues inside. We had room 104 on the second floor on the street side of the hotel. Nice big room with a very tidy bathroom, nice big towels and clean bed linen.
I thought the street may be noisy on a Friday night however there was no problem and we both slept through to breakfast. Speaking of which, it was very nice too! Buffet laid on so you could help yourself to a cooked breakfast or cereal, yoghurt etc.
There was a wedding party (very popular in this hotel apparently) on the evening so the hotel was busy but, again, no problem with noise.
Parking is limited with a small car-park behind the hotel but we managed to squeeze in OK.
