Gorgeous property and unbeatable location. But there were some really weird and uncomfortable things about the rooms. Make sure you know whether your room is on two floors. We did not realize ours was when we booked it, an the steep, dark, stairs between upstairs bedroom and downstairs sitting/dressing room and toilet were dark and difficult to navigate, especially at night. Also, we never could figure out the light switches, nor could the clerk who tried to help us. Lights fade on or off in sequences and switches seem to control multiple lighting locations and are not marked. We kept accidentally turning on the bed lights at night when trying to get to the bathroom, or turning off the bathroom light when trying to lower the lights in our bed area. It was a bit of an over-engineered mess.

Wonderful hotel. The location is perfect, on the river at the town centre and in a magnificent gothic building. The hotel has been renovated perfectly, and has a wonderful atmosphere. We stayed in The Stamp which is small but cosy and well laid out, and the bathroom is still a good size. The hotel staff are excellent, very professional and very friendly and helpful. The hotel is full of curiosities and the bar is beautiful, and the breakfast is great. I cannot recommend this hotel more we had an amazing stay and can't wait to return.

Well, There’s a huge problem with acessability, bringinging luggages for the hotel is quite a stressfu situation if you arrive by car and need to park nearby. All clobbestones... Also as we stayed in a loft style room, the first floor stayed chilled all our stay...
