It really is full of character and always very comfortable; I sleep wonderfully as it is so quiet. But this time I ate in the annexed bistro/wine bar and when ordering food, the waitress thought I ordered 'veggies' when in fact I ordered 'wedges'. My stay was enhanced by the collapse of the ceiling during breakfast the following morning, due to a water leak which had built up over some time but eventually brought down the old plaster and lath ceiling. Fortunately no-one was hurt and the damage was confined to the hotel's small bar area. Had a bit of a laugh about it though with the owner as it made my stay eventful. The owners are generous and the place atmospheric. I would stay more often if I could. And nothing's too much trouble for the staff. Although I'm glad to be going home after my business trip, I am sad to leave here.
