We stayed one night in a room with two double beds. They were comfortable, but quite narrow. The room itself was spacious and charming with a fireplace, but even though it was nice and clean you can feel it's getting worn. This is even more apparent in the rest of the hotel.  Staff were friendly, there was good wi-fi and...

Overall a good location and hotel. Not the cheapest options, but can happily recommend. Everyone was friendly and had no problems. Bed and room was comfortable. Breakfast was reasonable. Nice bonus of getting complimentary wine and cheese in the evening.

We stayed here 3 nights on our honeymoon and were upgraded to a deluxe room on the third floor. There was a fireplace but no key to turn on the gas!
