5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Quaint does not begin to describe this hotel. Plenty of character, no two rooms are alike. Excellent restaurant, good bar open till late. For people with mobility issues the lack of a lift and numerous stairs would be a problem.

Eclectic Charm
We were looking for a combination of good value and eclectic charm; the William Cecil scores highly on both counts. The decor of the hotel generally was both unusual and full of character; our room was Chinois on steroids, quite charming. We would have liked to stay longer, perhaps next time.

Adequate room but in need of some TLC
Room was a little tired and in need of a little TLC. I didn’t feel it was luxury or worth the money we paid for it. The en suite was very compact and it was difficult to use sink properly as it was between shower cubicle and towel rail. Also had lots of broken tiles in shower. On the plus side bed was very comfortable despite it creaking! & room had dog bowls and a dog bed set up ready.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Excellent. Don’t hesitate to book.
We were only booked for one night but wish it was longer. All the staff were the most friendly and helpful staff I have ever encountered on my many travels. Nothing was too much trouble. They smiled all the time. We stayed for dinner which was wonderful. It is a historic hotel and the rooms confirmed this. Very comfortable beds. Can’t praise the hotel enough. Five minute walk to town centre
