EXCELLENT (4.2 out of 5)

Disappointing - 2.3 out of 5

Andrew Tue, 5 December 2017


Liked: The breakfast was good.
Disliked: I arrived just after 10.00pm and there was no food available at all. No hot food; no sandwiches; not even crisps or nuts were available at the bar! The staff member at the bar didn't offer any apology for this peculiar lack of service. The bedroom was cold. I won't be staying here again.

Very comfortable and relaxing

Liked: The rooms were very cosy and comfortable and the bathroom very clean and provided all that we needed for our stay. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided together with an nespresso coffee maker. Also magazines and a local book about the area . Nice touches.

Really enjoyed the food.

Liked: We really enjoyed our 1 night stay with you.
Disliked: The toilet in the bathroom is most definately not situated in the right place.We are not very big people. I dread to think what it would be like for tall or larger people.The toilet should be facing the washbasin which would enable any person to use this facility more easily.

Liked the location and history...

Liked: Comfortable bed and room clean. Liked the history of such an old building
Disliked: Tv a bit temperamental, phone didn't connect to reception after early evening, one lamp not working. Decor badly needs a lift. Old and drab (room 50) needs repainting and fresh furnishings.
