Not very impressed - Overpriced for B&b only package in our opinion Rooms were nice and cosy. Beverage quality was very questionable. Staff were fine. Menu restricted. Live music was un-interactive. Cleanliness good in public area's. Car park too far away for heels. .

Its a lovey hotel, ideally located, and while the rooms are basic, they're clean and fit for purpose.

On the down side I had to request a room change at about 22.30, as there was a...
