Absolutely lovely atmosphere
A little bijou haven. Not your modern clean crisp lines so if that’s what you want keep searching. Helen Rob and John the dog are amazing as are all the La Rosa crew. Hotel was like stepping back in time lots of childhood memorabilia fun.

Lovely Unique Hotel
The stay was lovely and very unique, this is a hotel with a very old timey vibe, don’t expect televisions or anything with too much of a “modern” feel, but that is a good thing, it add to the character of the building overall, just take your laptop or Netflix on ya phone if it’s an issue, as they do have Wi-Fi! They have a tea room with a lovely vibe, and a cocktail lounge with lots of unique choice, Vampire Velvet was good, just bring a strong liver, they are boozy! Good location, it is a hell of a walk if you take the steps up so I recommend to stick to the ramps and if you have mobility issues especially so, but it’s still doable and 100% worth it for the views. And the BATH my goodness the tin bath in the Saloon room was a lifesaver! Cooled our aching muscles down a treat 😂
