A pair of 18th Century merchant houses were turned into an elegant hotel around 6 or 7 years ago, and what an impressive conversion. The public rooms have great style and opulence. The reception staff are a mixed bunch who find it difficult to maintain eye contact. I fell down 6 marble steps near the reception area and skinned both shins. A combination of wet weather, leather soles and some very hard and sharp marble steps. The matter was dealt with in a perfunctory manner by the young man who really wasn't in the mood for an incident.
My wife loved the size and bedroom layout in the old building, and the bar manager with a ballerina daughter was a character worth a conversation or two. The breakfast was well organised and tasty.
As long as you wear deck shoes and shin guards when walking around the ground floor, the visit should be pleasant and injury free.
