Liked the space of the room. There was however no cartoon channel & smelt like the bedding had a urine smell the whole night while trying to sleep.

Remarkable property considering it was built in 1875. Our room was excellent and very good value for money. Plenty of Parking just across from the entrance. The old lift added to our appreciation of the hotels age.
