I had read a few reviews saying that as the rooms are above the Commercial Pub it was very noisy. I can say that this was not my experience at all. We were in the Coleridge Suite looking onto St Peters courtyard...

Stayed in 'Keats', classy well appointed room with perfect bed and excellent facilities. Woke up to a spot on full English prepared by Ruth and served thoughtfully by Ellie. Cheshire Cat ale also spot on ! The Commerical set to become a regular pre Xmas bash for us ! Location unusual but right in the centre of town.
