Lovely room - poor service
Lovely rooms. A bit light for sleeping (when you come from the pitch-dark countryside :-)) but a lovely old building. Hotel ruined it by giving our room key to the next occupants, who came in at 8:45am - then proceeded to return and put all their stuff in in our absence while we stepped out for coffee pre-checking out! Then the hotel gave the next guest our email address because we complained about the intrusion - they then started to email us unhappy that we had complained!! Such a shame. Lovely place.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
NO heat in December!
The entire floor had NO heat - thankfully, we were only booked for 1 night. The staff eventually (after 4 mentions from us that it STILL wasn't warm) brought us a space heater to get through the night. The room is quite tiny, but acceptable for the price and location (in the heart of town), but the mattress - lumpy and not very comfortable at all. We kept mentioning to the staff that the room was frigid (seemed like it was in the low 50s) and they kept replying "we turned up the thermostat for your floor". Ultimately, the owner appeared, though he didn't acknowledge our presence, and determined they actually did have a problem - the entire floor was not receiving any heat at all from their system. The staff apologized, refunded half the room fee and we left the next morning.
