Older hotel impeccably kept up. Luxury at its finest. If you sign up for the B&B and I think you should unless you hate food, the breakfasts are unbelievable. Eggs Benedict 2 ways, vegetarian breakfast choices hot and cold! Smoke Haddock topped with mustard Hollandaise, and the list goes on and on. The food in the pub/dining room were a complete surprise. I asked for my pan seared salmon over pea and mint risotto to be cooked rare. I could not have done better myself. PERFECT
So if you want a tad of extravagance, stay here. Now be warned to Americans, There is no lift/elevator but they will carry your luggage for you, and no air conditioning. But in England hotel windows do open and fresh air is superb. To those who made comments about the trains, I was here for 4 nights. Never once did I hear a train. The only sounds I heard were the collared doves coo-ing.
