“Strange Hotel !”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Only been for light lunch a couple of times, on first visit seemed a really unusual place to visit, like stepping back in time, plenty to look around staff eager to show rooms, which were something from the past.although old fashion , they were spotlessly clean. Only had sandwiches for lunch , OK but felt expensive for what it was. On second visit felt the novelty had worn off a bit and it really was quite shabby. Terrance area seemed dirty, but that is probably because of the age of the hotel. Really needs money spent on it. Staff friendly and helpful

“Step back in time!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Very interesting collection of objects of bygone days. We loved the napery ...a collection of napkins with artwork or words from previous guests.

“Magical”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Old world charm. I didn't believe places like this still existed.
Amazing value for money. Largely refurbished, but slightly shabby in some of the common areas.

“Grunge galore”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

A great setting and an undoubtedly interesting building but it is stuffed full of relics, some of them of the human kind, such as UKIPPERS. What a pity this essentially pleasant, family-owned hotel has got stuck in a timewarp. It needs some spring cleaning of the literal and metaphorical kind.

“Unique!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

This hotel is creepy in the best possible way - it really is one of a kind. We came for afternoon tea, and were won over by its quirky charms!
