Hotel built in the 17th Century offers plenty of ambiance and charm that comes with the smell of mold and decay. We stayed in the "modern" part of the hotel with elevator and newer baths, however there was no hot water in the sink, furniture was breaking apart, room had stale and moldy smell. Dinner was very average, main dish was very dry and uneatable chicken; service was poor, no one offered drinks, wine, beer, servers were dropping plates and leaving without a word, breakfast was not great, you had to ask for either tea or coffee at the entrance to the breakfast area before you start service, otherwise no one will come and serve you hot beverages. Very unpleasant experience with staff of the hotel. The stores in the city are opening late and closing early, there is not much to do in this city once you go through the Shakespeare birthplace. Most of the houses and hotel seems to be in the same state of decay as this hotel.
