After consulting Trip Advisor, we just "dropped in" and were given choices of which type of room to rent and a guided tour by the reception to see them.
The rooms are as can be expected in a Victorian style hotel. Very "British" with wall to wall carpets, a small bathroom aso.
No aircon made the nights rather warm.
Service was very good and personal and the restaurant served good meals. In style.
If you like hotels with a bit of oldfashioned style, go there!
If you are more conserned about big flatscreens, CNN and minibar, stay elsewhere.
