Spacious, calm and gracious
An easy walk from the station and easy to find, provided you pay attention to the street numbers. There is a very small plaque beside the front door; otherwise, no obvious hotel signage. Isobel may contact you prior to arrival to ensure all is ready for you. Isobel is a charming host, who will give you some good information to help you orient yourselves and make the most of your stay. She is very attentive without being intrusive: she has the balance just right. The hotel feels spacious especially upstairs, accessed by the sweeping (marble?) staircase. Our room was simply but tastefully furnished. The bedroom floors are attractively polished floorboards. Bottled water is provided in the room and refreshed each day. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but a very well equipped communal kitchen downstairs. There are some mugs with lids to take upstairs but also inside & garden areas for sitting. The common breakfast table proved one of the unexpected high points for us over our 2 nights.
The heavy footed or those who wear heels may wish to bear in mind how sound might travel to the adjoining rooms.”
