I stayed overnight on a business trip, and attended a meeting the following day, also at this hotel. When I arrived, the room I was given was spacious and comfortable, but I asked for a different one as I thought it didn't smell as fresh as I would like it too. The manager (owner) was extremely helpful, and immediately offered me an alternative which was (in my opinion) much cleaner.The decor is olde-worlde luxe, with brocade curtains and bedspreads, antique-style furniture and even a marble wash stand in my room. The rooms that were shown to me are very generously proportioned with large windows and pleasant views of the gardens.
I always use earplugs to sleep when I travel, and I slept well in a beautifully clean, comfortable bed.
The only disappointment was the food. I have to admit that the breakfast was poor. The sausage had been cooked the night before and were insufficiently reheated, and the bacon had a strange texture, possible having been kept warm or even rehated in stock or water, as it had a texture that reminded me of stewed, not grilled, meat.
The room and breakfast cost me £110 for one night midweek in March.More
