Disliked: although prior messages said we could have a lower floor, shame we had to be on the third floor with my elderly dog. they wavered the fee for my dog.

Great location

Liked: Location and the fact that it?s one of a kind, not a Premier Inn. Pleasant staff
Disliked: Some of the soft furnishings could be updated. Cooked breakfast was nice but 10 would be a lot if you just went Continental

Overall, the location and service...

Liked: Breakfast was good. Tasty with a good mix of items to choose from. Speedy service.Reception staff were really helpful and welcoming. Location was convenient and made for an easy weekend.
Disliked: Room and overall hotel decor was a bit tired. We really appreciated the character of the hotel but areas were clearly dated. The room itself was clean and functional but not overly comfortable. The bed/mattress was very hard.

Great location, comfortable.

Liked: The Dickens Suite is very spacious, though the bed was the smallest we've slept in for years! Pretty, but we're used to more space. Very comfortable though, and a good night's sleep.
Disliked: The shower was hot, but the shower lead not long enough so you had to stoop under the water.
