I have stayed twice in this lovely historical building. I love the feeling of it and the photos of good old days. The setting at the back is very much like a peaceful refuge whilst the front is directly on the busy Main Street. This did not stop me from having a good sleep. Reasonable internet connection and great lounge upstairs for business informal meetings. Breakfast... probably a weak point although the ladies are lovely and will do eggs in front of you which is nice the rest of the ingredients are not quite what you would expect from this otherwise very classy establishment.
