I booked this hotel for a conference and then stayed on to see the city, staying a week in all. I particularly wanted a quiet location with a desk in the room, tea and coffee facilities and traditional décor; I was pleased with my room, which was on the third floor and overlooked the lovely courtyard garden, although the furniture and curtains were a bit dated, so cannot rate it more than a 4 now. However, a major refurbishment started during my stay so I'm sure things will improve, but hope the historic character will be maintained, as it has been in the foyer and breakfast room. The breakfast itself was excellent. All the staff were lovely and made me welcome throughout my stay.
