Stayed here for 2nd time last night, and we rarely stay in an hotel twice. The New Inn is a beautiful, historic building built approximately in 1455 and Lady Jane Grey was actually staying here when the proclamation of her succession to the British throne was made from the Inn galley. The building takes my breath away it is so amazing and I feel privilaged that it is an hotel and I had the opportunity to stay here. My husband and I paid £44 for a standard room with breakfast which is extremely cheap. When we arrived we had been upgraded to the Oak Suite a gorgeous oak panelled room with a four poster bed, we felt very lucky. I didn't feel so lucky later when the karaoke was still going on very late, we definately had no peace until after midnight but honestly if that was the price to pay for staying in that room I was prepared to pay it. There was no hot water when we arrived which was unfortunate has my husband had just run 5 miles in a road race and was sweaty and in need of a bath, but we boiled the kettle a few times and he had an old fashioned strip wash. Yes the hotel does need investment, big investment I guess and yes our carpet was stained but to be honest we didn't care about that. I feel so sad it is getting bad reviews, the staff we met were friendly and helpful and we want to come back and stay in the Lady Jane Grey room. This hotel is central, very near the cathedral and very very old, perhaps people staying here should appreciate the history and price and not look for things to complain about.
