Booked the Duke's Head because of it's central position in the Town. All the staff were pleasant & smart. The ambience suited the old building. Our bedroom in the original old block did not disappoint. Although the high quality upgrade was apparent, our room still had a 'traditional' feel. (high ceiling & even a sloping floor!) The bathroom was spacious, modern with good lighting & plenty of shelf space. The new sash windows opened top & bottom easily & provided good ventilation. The décor was traditional with a modern touch. Our dining experience was perfect & once again the staff excelled.
From our discussions with 'the locals' It seems the 'Dukes Head' in previous years did not get a good press. We can now say that following the extensive renovation & new management, this hotel can be recommended without reservation.
