We were guests at a recently wedding at the hotel though did not stay overnight. A wonderful quirky building, obviously lovingly restored by people who appreciate its history rather than by some detached interior designer. The care and attention by the staff to ensure that the day was perfect not jus for the bride and groom but all their guests... More

The room (no 19) was a funky duplex with the bedroom and a freestanding bath upstairs. The stairs were narrow and steep so not for the frail. Downstairs was a well lit, comfortable sitting area with... More

Loved everything about this hotel! The staff and service were both brilliant, the rooms were gorgeous and the food was superb! Can't ask for much more. It was the perfect base for a girly weekend away and close enough to all the attractions. Would love to return! Thank you

A wonderful boutique hotel full of sumptuous glamour. Loved the split level room. Great bath products and wonderfully fluffy towels and bathrobes. Superb power shower and very comfortable beds. I would definitely stay again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend.
