Positive Reviews


Excellent food

Beautiful old building

Negative Reviews


Customer service issues

There have been a few times when guests have complained of issues at this hotel. The staff listen carefully, but no apology is offered. This leaves some guests feeling undervalued by the staff and owners of the hotel.


Not the best showers

The water pressure in the showers is said to be a little weak, and some guests aren't too happy that at an expensive hotel such as this, they had to wait for a while for the water to heat up before having a shower.


No lift

If you have mobility issues, then this hotel may not be ideal for you. The rooms are upstairs, and you may struggle to make it up all those steps. It's an old building so no real fault of the owners that there is no lift.
