After much research, I decided to reserve a Knights Room at Hotel Jan Brito. My husband and I spent four nights in room 10.
Room 10 is located on an upper floor, facing the street. The room has a very high ceiling with 16th century oak beams. At first, I was apprehensive at having to sleep under all that old wood! My husband, on the other hand, instantly loved the room. Use caution, as there is a low beam between the bed area and the space where the table and chairs are located. Surprisingly, we never bumped into the beam.
The bathroom is charming with oak beams, scalloped sink and small window. There was a generous supply of towels, including washcloth mitts. Good hair dryer in the bathroom, one of the best I’ve used in a hotel. The top of the bathroom doorway is slanted, watch your head! The bathtub is deep, with nothing (except a beam) to hold onto if you are stepping out of the bathtub after taking a shower.
The buffet breakfast was excellent. The woman working at breakfast was especially nice. Everyone at Hotel Jan Brito was helpful and friendly.
