Very comfortable bed. Clean. Good food. Friendly staff. I was travelling on my own, and felt very safe in the room. Even though the room was near to the lift it was very quiet. Would definitely return again.

Lovely hotel. Bathroom s a little dated however spotlessly clean. Food was excellent and staff very friendly. Lovely large rooms with lovely view of garden. More old charm however don't let that put you off as staff and food make it worth the stay.
