    Historic gem!

    Fabulous in every respect. This is a very old building, full of character. Consequently there are some inevitable compromises that have to be made to respect this. Our room was superb. The food here is very good too. The people who work here are also excellent, managing to do full breakfast during a power cut!

    Basic

    Had a good stay. We had the standard room which was basic but nice. Nothing to complain about enjoyed my stay. Didn't dine so can't comment. Good Chinese opp tho. Rough on the outside but good food.

    Good stay but not the best

    Staff were excellent and everything provided but room was too hot so we had a fan running all the time. Bathroom needs renovating. Overall, hotel probably needs money spent on it as it looks a little ‘tired’. Good location and car parking good.
