Fair 4.0
Dreadful, told upon arrival after paying no cooked breakfast, must go up hill to local pub serving 8.30-11.30 greasy Joe’s, bad all day.

Fair 4.0
ok place but wont be staying again due to noise
very noisy room : heard through paper thin walls neighbours. And people talking as they walk by room in morning and evening and screaming people on street . Pillows uncomfortable Nicely furnished but not thought through ie uncomfortable pillows./sound proofing
a, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Overall a very pleasant stay
What is not clear in the description is the lack of car parking space. Public car parking pass is available from the hotel for an extra £6 per day(3pm - 3pm). Access to the hotel is also tricky by car by virtue of the quaint narrow cobbled streets but this is a rather insignificant trade off. Lovely central location with delightful staff. Lovely rooms and breakfast. Be warned, Steep Hill is most appropriately named. I find the 5 star rating just a little on the generous side but overall a very pleasant stay indeed. I would certainly go again.
