Old Tavern and Inn
Posted Sep 12, 2016
The Abbots Fireside dates from the 1600's. There are narrow spiral stairs to second floor. The room floors slope to the window wall. The doors are short and open with a skeleton key. That being said, it has nice hot water for a pleasant shower, the street noise is minimal after a certain hour. I wish that the bed did not slope toward the wall - made you feel like you would fall out of bed. However, it was clean, quiet and quaint. The owners are extremely nice, and very helpful. The town of Elham is quaint and quiet during the night, which is a plus. I would recommend this hotel for someone who has light luggage and likes a bit of history.
