I stayed here on business for 4 nights recently. It is an old building and there are no lifts, so if you have plenty of luggage stay on the ground floor, although there are only two levels so this shouldntreally cause any real problems. You will struggle to get mobile phone reception (which some may consider a blessing) but other than that I cannot think of any problems I had during my stay.
the setting is lovely, and you get that nice feeling of being 'away from it all'. My room was fine although could have been laid out better, the main mirror was on the wardrobe door in the corner of the room, which, with the room furniture in the way, made it slightly difficult to use properly.
tThere is a pleasant bar area, with friendly, helpful staff.
I would have to say the main pluspoint of the hotel is the food. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there every day, and while one or two dishes werent to my taste, everything was superbly cooked and presented, real mouth watering stuff.
