A great find. It is a little 'Harry Potter' as you walk through a cupboard to get to the bedrooms but the rooms are lovely - really nicely done with very comfy beds, lovely linen and fluffy towels. Quite noisy as the room is on the High Street - but I always travel with ear plugs! Staff were all great. Forgot to say - Room 3 toilet seat was broken!!
