Booked one night via Wotif in a 'traditional room'. On arrival staff were very good and the pianist playing added to the atmosphere. The public areas on the surface do look good and reflect the historic nature of the hotel although closer inspection the hotel overall looks a little tired. Wouldn't recommend the traditional room as it was small, some of the furniture had seen better days and you could hear everybody walking past & creaking floorboards above. The 'deluxe' rooms may be better as most of the reviews here suggest
Saying that ALL the staff were fantastic, in fact possibly the best ever experience, and my wife loved te historic look and feel (hence the Very Good rating).
