Rundown hotel not very close to anything useful and very limited parking. Staff was nice and very friendly, but the rooms were teensy and very dated and not comfortable for 2 adults. I would prefer to be nearer the castle next time.

I was very disappointed to have received your review, I would have loved to have spoken with you at the time of your stay to discuss any issues you had, you will see from other reviews I am very approachable and appreciate feedback.
Apologies if you found the house run-down, again it would have been great to discuss this in order to understand what you found wrong. The house has been recently decorated and most bedrooms have solid oak furniture which is less than two years old. The mattresses are also quite new and the whole house is equipped with free superfast Wi-Fi. Two of the shower rooms are dated but work well, they are being upgraded this coming winter.
The house was built in 1890 and some rooms are on the small side, but this is to accommodate the en-suite shower rooms. The room sizes are stated on the booking website.
Sorry you did not like the location or the parking. The location is shown on the booking website. The house is about a 20/25 minute walk from the city centre or 5 minutes in a car, plus there are numerous bus services with stops near the house. There is sufficient parking for three cars plus street parking nearby.
