Good 6.0
Nice hotel but disappointing room.
Lovely quirky atmosphere and great staff. Nice lack of televisions in rooms and communal areas. Only complaint is with the Stoker room. No bedside tables to put a cup of tea on and only able to get in and out of a double bed from one side really wasn't good enough. Having to climb over each other to go to the loo in the middle of the night was an annoyance. Stoker is a single room that has had a double bed stuck in it. Disappointing because the rest of the hotel was lovely.

Step back in time.
This hotel has themed rooms. As we were in the gothic/victorian room the furnishings fitted the era,therefore old original. It was as it should be. The bed was super comfy. The breakfast very good and the staff happy and friendly (including the dog). Would stay again, and try a different themed room.

Not the best, towels not changed even though they were in the Bath, bin not emptied and not cleaned. No shower in bathroom.

Amazing hotel
We don't have a bad word to say. The decor is so unique and we loved it, everything was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We are used to a king size bed, so were worried the double would be too small however it was so comfy we fell straight to sleep. If you want something a bit different this is the place. Will definitely be coming back.

A very special place to stay.
If you are looking for something special and totally left field, then we recommend you spend a couple of days at La Rosa. It's simply the best and most imaginative place we have ever stayed. The girls running it are absolute sweeties and the feeling of leaving La Rosa was pretty similar to saying goodbye to nurses who have pampered you after a spell in hospital. It's that good!
