Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are sorry that the window catch was broken - this has been fixed. As for the lighting,, it seems that the fuse spur had inadvertently been turned off. This has now been turned back on. As I'm sure you can imagine, we always want the best for all of our guests - the issue you had with your hot water was simply due to demand on our system - everyone was showering at the same time. While this is far from ideal, the system does catch up after about 10 minutes, although this is far from ideal if you have to leave by a specific time! We are sure that, on your next visit, you will not experience any of these issues and that you will have the stay we wish for all of our guests.

Stayed to visit son at uni and for my moms birthday. We had a call on the day we were travelling to let us know about potential bad weather on the way and advise what to do if we get here late. This was brilliant as it showed the staff go beyond their normal duties to help. Once

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review - we enjoyed your visit and it was lovely that it coincided with your mum's birthday too! Hopefully the next time that you stay the weather will be a little warmer but, in the meantime, have a great year and we'll see you again soon!

Thanks for staying with us - a shame that the result wasn't better for you though! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us - the quirky layout is thanks, in great part, to the builders who built us in 1843 - they were great at their jobs, but probably weren't considering the needs of a thriving guest accommodation business over 170 years later! We look forward to your next stay here with us!
