    A great historic hotel/Pub. The only thing I did not like was that the menu has changed a bit since our last visit.

    Valentines Day surprise!

    Took my amazing wife away for a surprise romantic Valentines night. The room was immaculate, the bed was very comfortable and the vibe at the Inn was buzzing. Most enjoyable stay, we will be returning soon.

    Nice Character Hotel and Great Staff

    Arrived late. No problem at all. Got the number of the Nightporter and he showed me to my room. Great service. Hotel has a great mix of character and modern. Only minor to note: Parking close by is quite tight with a larger car (in my case Passat Estate) due to available space. But if you get there earlier there is free parking a bit from the hotel.
