    Lots of history to the hotel and we had a fun and comfortable stay. Room we had was nice (felt like student digs - no bad thing!) and staff were friendly. Lift was a blast from the past - manual sliding doors and grills!

    Queen Elizabeth II stayed here in 1954, but somehow I don't think she'd stay here in 2017. A lovely building and hotel trying to reinvent itself has a little more to learn about the 21st century tourist/traveller. People's expectations are so much higher these days....More

    Nice little hotel with cute, quirky finishes, stopped over the night and was greeted with great service and a clean room.there wasn't any noise during the night and the overall atmosphere leant to a rejuvenating stay.
