Visited with my partner for one night. Found the hotel without any issues and we lucky enough to get parked up. Staff were so warm and friendly and the hotel was lovely inside. Our room was perfect so we were both very happy. Great location to be able to walk to the castle etc.

This might be an odd question, but do all the rooms have bathtubs ?
Hi Lisa, not all rooms have bathtubs. All superior rooms and some deluxe are shower only. If you do wish to book, please drop a note in the request field and we will ensure you have a bath with shower over. Kind regards Jonathan

When will the building work be finished?
Thank you for your email. It is a rolling schedule and some parts of the works will be returned to the hotel before others. Fully complete is expected to be towards the end of the year following some delays due to archaeologist surveys
