Really enjoyed our stay over. Real sense of history and character but still well maintained and neat. Room was nicely done and very cosy (1 metre more of space to get past bed would be great but more an irritation than showstopper). Balcony is really nice and you are sure to chat to your neighbours at some point which adds to the appeal. Had a great meal downstairs, excellent wine list and good menu. Pub looks like good local spot, probably get quite rowdy at times but we had no problems. Breakfast room nicely stocked for light breakfast. All round, a good experience.
