Unfortunately I cannot give this the excellent I would like to as we didn't get the best two nights sleep. I'm afraid that the bed just wasn't comfortable enough and I did suffer a little from back ache. This is of course a personal opinion and many people might love the extremely soft mattress. The other issue was with it being room 7 at the rear of the hotel it overlooked the churchyard. In itself this isn't a problem but the bells are. I'm afraid we did hear most of the chimes through the night.
I have dwelt quite a bit on this as I do feel it is important that people are aware of it when booking.
On the plus side; the staff were excellent, friendly, welcoming and always willing to help. The bedroom was clean and spacious and attended to daily. The Bar and restaurant were excellently presented and staffed. The lounge was cosy and homely. The location was excellent, niceley hidden away but in the centre.
We were told by different locals without prompting that the food at the hotel was excellent and rather than eat out we stayed and ate in both nights and weren't dissapointed. The only downside was the price of the wines which I felt were a little excessive compared to the reasonable meal prices.
All told I would certainly recommend others to try the hotel and we would stay again if in the area albeit in a different room.
If looking to eat out then definitely put the restaurant on your list.
