This is such a gorgeous place - steeped in history, it oozes old world charm from every beam. Don't come here if you like modern, sleek hotels. You won't get it. You'll get squeaky floorboards, sloping floors and low beams. However, it is also lovely and charming. Food was ok. I wouldn't rave about it but the staff are helpful and try their best to accommodate a fussy vegetarian.
All in all a lovely, old fashioned charming hotel.
