The decor which was quirky, beautifully done, comfortable and charming. Our room and ensuite was incredibly clean, something which was really appreciated. Great food at the restaurant Brac and Bow, where we enjoyed one of the best meals we've eaten in a long time. Only quibble was the lack of human interaction when checking in and checking out. But that's just a personal preference. Lovely establishment and I'd can't wait go to back for another visit.

Restyled old pub. Front rooms a bit noisy. Decor is 'interesting' by the time you unload all the cushions off the bed, hardly any space to step around the bed. Mats on the floor make for a slip and trip risk - and get caught under the door to the room.
