Staff were really good. Very nice breakfast. The hotel is old so obviously the floors are creaky but they are very uneven in the bedrooms. Room could do with a facelift. Very dated. Nothing new flooring and wallpaper wouldn’t fix

4/10 Fair

Cant recommend it I'm afraid
Hotel was very tatty and no A/C. I phoned ahead and was assured that they had fans. When we arrived no fans were available (hottest night on record!). The "car park" was OK for a 16th century coach and a couple of horses but was very tight for a modern car, we ended up parking on the street. It wasnt dear so I suppose you get what you pay for. The staff, however were very friendly. We didnt stay for breakfast. To hot!

Hotel was fine but not great. Definitely felt old, though fits with the area. Service was good but the food in the restaurant was not great. WiFi was terrible.
