This is a very pretty hotel and we were lucky enough to sleep in the oldest part. If you stay in the same room be wary of the door frame - it's incredibly low! The window was tiny, but the room was a decent size....More

Dear Suzie, Thank you for your lovely review and I will check the glass door to the bathroom as it should have opaque cover over it to make it private. I look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best regards

We enjoyed an evening meal with friends in this quaint old hotel. The bar is not huge so best to book a table but they have an extensive menu choice. A little warm on a hot evening as the old Elizabethan windows don’t open!!
