    Stayed three nights and was impressed by the beautiful old building and size of the rooms. Functional and comfortable furniture (not luxury). Only downside was the distance to restaurants on a Sunday night when Boffins and Fellows were closed.

    Hidden away from most people, it a great place to go to for some cheeky after work beers. The beer garden is incredibly nice, and they provide some pretty decent food to go with it all. Cold lagers on tap.
