Amazing place to stay

The decor is beautiful, a fantastic mix of old world character with a contemporary edge. The staff were ever so friendly and helpful at all times. It is a pleasure to stay here and food was delicious.

Wonderful Hotel

Staff are so helpful and caring. Nothing is too much trouble. Rooms are well appointed and modern, yet the hotel manages to retain an old world charm. Breakfast is of a high standard as you would expect in such a hotel. It is situated in the centre of town with restaurants, shops and gardens all within a short stroll. One of the best hotels we’ve stayed in.
