I stayed at the Minerva for a couple of nights in January 2012. I booked a small double for sole occupation.
The hotel (which is really a guest house) has and is in the process of being completely redecorated. The room that I had was small and I wouldn't like to spend a week with my other half in it. The fittings were all brand new and there was a seperate en-suite shower room. This again was newly installed. The en-suite was on of my only two gripes as they had installed a "Triton" water heater which was next to useless.
The other gripe was that the owners only served breakfast between 0830 and 0900. However, they were very accommodating as I had to get out early - they served me breakfast at 8.00am.
The parking is limited and there is only room for a couple of cars on the forecourt. There is plenty of pay for parking around the hotel.
The hotel is not licensed.
I can thoroughly recommend the hotel for a couple of nights.
