    Centrally located, historic hotel
    Historic hotel, good location and comfortable beds. Do not count on the thermal pools, they are small and not very clean.

    Nice looking Hotel
    The room was a bit on the small side, plus being an old place, it was quite creaky, but a good looking hotel.
    Menahem, gb5 night romance trip
    Fair 4.0
    Closed pool
    I wish we had been told the pool was closed for our stay. There were other options available which were just as good for location.
    Alan, gb3 night romance trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Great hotel , great friendly helpful polite staff , fab room on first floor with balcony outside , a gem of a heritage hotel . Breakfast very good , nice choice though we weren’t sure if we could have juice , cereal etc with a cooked breakfast as wasn’t offered though was on side. Lovely location , walking distance to all the sights , loved it all , rooms had everything we needed though had to ask for more milk & English tea bags ( plenty of green ones though !!) book it , you’ll love it , Happy hour - good prices on alcohol too .
