This old hotel has character, and our twin room (Room 20) was certainly quirky, with doors both to an inside corridor and to an outside passageway. But the room was somewhat cramped, with only a narrow gap between the foot of the bed and the wall.
Our tiny en-suite bathroom had a bath so small that it was impossible to lie down in it. And for no obvious reason the flexible shower hose was tethered to the wall so that it was impossible to lift the shower-head down far enough to rinse one’s nether regions properly.
However, I would still recommend this hotel provided it can improve its breakfast experience. When we went for breakfast, we found that the restaurant had a pleasant ambience, but it was sadly let down by the buffet-style choices available. The hot items on offer were fried eggs, sausages, bacon, hash browns, tomatoes, mushrooms and baked beans. Fine, except that the fried eggs were grossly overcooked and the sausages were clearly hardly cooked at all. (As vegetarians we ignored the sausages, but we noticed other diners complaining about them). I usually enjoy a roll or a croissant as part of a hotel breakfast, but the only bread products available were slices of white or brown bread that been out on display so long that they were too dry to eat other than toasted.
