excellent relaxing experience
beautiful hotel, lovely room with fantastic view. breakfast excellent and very efficiently and safely served. no parking available 1st night but free on-street parking nearby. bit of an uphill trek coming back from town but so take that into account if it might be an issue. staff all friendly and helpful. would recommend this hotel as a great example of a traditional establishment, such a pleasant change from corporate nondescript alternatives

A bit chilly
The hotel was spotless and fully covid compliant. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Our only complaint was that the heating in room 11 was in adaquate and we were cold. We didn't have control and were told it didn't come on until 6 pm. It didn't come on very early in the morning of either. Fortunately the bath robes provided eased our discomfort.
