The very best except for the noise.
Friendly staff and super service. Excellent breakfast with great choice. One negative thing is the level of noise throughout the night. If staying again would book room on top floor.

Nice hotel with interesting history
Nice facility in a renovated historic house. There was a fair amount of street noise until 10 p.m. Lots of restaurants in walking distance. The backyard was a beautiful garden where you can have tea or cocktails.

Butler House Hotel tries hard, but...
The prices reflect the rating but not the reality (we paid 275 Euro per night mid-week.) The hotel is a bit soulless. Full disclosure, we did not complain on the spot. We didn't want to ruin our stay by being "difficult" guests and having discussions about the deficiencies of the hotel. The staff were exceptionally lovely but pitifully inexperienced in the class of hotel and did not offer the level of service we expected for our 275 Euro per night. In our room the room had not been properly vacuumed. There were bits of wrapper on the floor. In addition, there was bird poop on one of the net curtains (inside). The room itself is tired. The mirror in the bathroom is a weak attempt at making the room a bit updated but doesn't fit the decor or style of the hotel. There was no explanation in the room of why the room was named as it was (each room supposedly had an explanation). We asked for an iron and ironing board which were delivered in a very timely manner but remained outside our room for 24 hours after. At the afternoon tea we booked, there was dried egg on the fork I got, and the scone was semi-raw. I brought the scone to the attention of the waitress, and she offered to replace it, but nothing else and no follow-up (lack of training?) We sat outside (beautiful grounds and garden) and we informed the staff that the seats were wet and perhaps they might want to dry them before seating anyone else. It wasn't taken into account. I wouldn't be picky if the price was appropriate
