Room 25, June 22
Nice hotel but a little tired, clean but some staining on carpets. Bed was very comfortable. TV in room wasn’t working. Would consider staying again though.

4/10 Fair

Totally deserted & misleading.
Arrived 9pm. Locked out, no access instructions sent. Rang a number to get key box code. On entry all in darkness no one around. No deli, no food no drinks unlike the advert. Totally misleading on Hotels.com website.

Short break
Very hospitable hosts , very friendly and accommodating, nice comfortable beds , old victorian property so no lifts but can get help with bags up the stairs. Recovering from covid so no bar open as yet but will be soon , which will be good Good location about 5 minutes to centre Would have prefered a cooked breakfast but could upgrade if preferred.
