Superb 9.0 From 67 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Loved it
The town house is really quirky and you can tell they’ve spent a lot of time paying attention to detail. Although in a central location our stay was still quiet and relaxing with friendly staff.

Highly recommended
Fabulous overnight stay in the Penthouse. It is just a pity they no longer serve evening meals but there are plenty of choices locally. Penthouse is beautiful but mind your head even with the padding on the ceiling beams! This is a lovely individual hotel which I would have no hesitation in recommending or returning to.
