Stayed for one night in a basic double. The establishment was well presented, the room was small but well appointed and very clean - the en-suite bathroom was very nice. We ate in the pub in the evening - lovely atmosphere and the food was well presented and plentiful. On the whole the food was good value. We were out... More

Nice room, bit small but nice, thoughtful set of dvds in the room, watched a film which I never do usually (was remains of the day). Good ales in the pub downstairs- professional attentive staff, food also good.

I met my friends and we had to decide what food to eat, a very hard decision, all the plates coming out looked lovely. The food was amazing and they say you get what you pay for and this is correct,... More

The hotel is over 300 years old.

The room and bed were extremely comfortable. Nice touches were the fresh coffee and cafetiere in the room. Being vegetarian there were... More

Stayed in a luxury double room with a great bed. The room was airy and quiet even though it overlooked the street - it was a Monday night. The room was large and very comfortable. The hotel doesn't have parking but there is secure parking very close so that wasn't a problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful and... More
