I booked here for a one night short break. The room was EUR180, including breakfast which is a lot. However, we felt we got value for that. We arrived on a Sunday evening and were upgraded. The room was enormous, four poster bed, everything in excellent condition. Yes, it is dated but that, for us, was part of its charm. We had afternoon tea and dinner in the tearooms. The food was nicely done and we were very happy to sit quietly by the fire. As others have noted, there are no tea facilities in the rooms but we felt this was an improvement: you just ring reception and the tea and coffee are complementary and are deliver to your room. Proper tea in a proper cup with proper milk was, for me, far better than struggling with tiny packets!
As such, not cheap, but it gave us what we wanted. We felt welcome - the staff were not as well-trained as they might be but were attentive and friendly. Would return.
