Lovely historical building with polite and helpful staff...very good location. Room was small and tired looking..in need of a re-fresh. It appears that the management have little time to look after the building and judt want to take the money. Breakfast was average...nothing special, but acceptable. No way a 4 star...3 star at best.

Only good thing about this hotel was the location and the staff at front desk . Rooms are miniature , not as clean as you'd expect for the money , mould in the shower , draft coming in the window which was looking out onto a building site , air con working when it felt like it , couldn't even sit on the toilet properly as it was up against the wall in the bathroom . It was the worst part of my trip going back to that room .
