    Nice room with a very poor bathroom

    The room was clean but the bathroom was poorly laid out with a ridiculous shower that was almost unusable.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    thoroughly enjoyed my brief stay at the Crab and Boar, beautiful, spacious, well equipped room, friendly staff, but above all, the kitchen! The food was sublime, including the best pasta dish i think ive ever had.
