Stayed here for two nights. Lovely hotel. Absolutely spotless. Great breakfast. Lovely helpful and friendly staff. Great town location. The restaurant is okay if you want a plate of food and it's a lot better thank other eating venues in town. The steaks are great!

Potentially a lovely place, I thought it would have had a bit more of a refurbish/deep clean after changing ownership and the staff need a bit of direction. They could have increased our spend by 50% had they asked if we needed any more drinks,...More

Had a lovely lunch here. The wait staff were attentive, well-trained and polite. I had a goatÄs cheese quiche with salad and it was just perfect. Very small, but delicious! The restaurant feels ancient and cozy and very charming but the amenities are up-to-date. Reservations...More

Nice location and lovely building with garden. We ordered lattes and had to wait ages for them and when they finally appeared they were lukewarm. We will not return.
