Historic Charm
The immediate neighborhood is full of pubs, shops and great restaurants. The Hotel can seem confusing in layout, but it actually adds to its historic charm. Do NOT miss high tea in the ‘Great Room’! While admiring beautiful woodwork, the Owner came by and offered friendly help and info.

Absolutely lovely stay
We stayed here for two nights and wish that we could’ve stayed longer. Everything was outstanding from the service to the quality of the rooms. Breakfast was delicious. Make sure to grab a vesper martini from the cocktail bar. Would definitely stay here again.
