We stayed in Room 404, which is part of "the mews". Comfortable enough but slightly on the damp side, which was remedied by opening the window. But, in these days of pandemic with a virus carried by airborne water droplets is it perhaps wise for the mews rooms to be used.

We enjoyed our stay, and could see the hotel was making a big effort to deal with Covid19. Unfortunately not all the guests were making the same effort, especially with the wearing of face masks in public areas.

Great stay at the hotel - clean, friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was good, a bit slow but that was due to social distancing etc.
