We've stayed here three times now, when visiting the October Literary Festival (which is superb), and the Lypiatt is just-right walking distance from the epicenter of the festivities. It is likewise convenient to an array of good restaurants. The rooms are beautifully maintained and decorated; and while the upper rooms are a bit smaller, they have enticing views of this small, charming city, and are worth the stair climb (as well as being a tad cheaper), if you are physically fit. The breakfasts are excellent - the cold fruits and cereal buffet as well as the hot breakfast. I generally order the same thing because it is cooked so well all four days of the stay. Robert is a charming host who keeps chipper and personal in spite of the constant tug of responsibilities. A long-time member of the staff, Tess, amiably and ably backs up Robert. As an American visitor to the Literary Festival, I'm always overwhelmed by the quality of the 10 days of innumerable events, and the Lypiatt is just the right place to retreat to, where (by now) everyone knows my name.
