Business stay of one night with colleagues plus dinner. Room nice character but not as clean in the details as would expect. Light fitting dangling from ceiling in bathroom (so only the shaving light worked in the bathroom). Inconsistent wifi coverage - kept tripping out.
Dinner ok, but expensive and not particularly copious. Staff friendly but seemed inexperienced. Breakfast - some original options, but took a long time to arrive.
So overall, Ok but not brilliant, although could fairly easily be stepped up in standard. Nice setting.
