      Poor & overpriced

      I wouldn’t call this a hotel, rather a shabby ,run down , grubby, dingy guest house. The curtains were tatty & almost hanging off the track in room 11. Pillows cheap nasty clumps of foam. En suite .... if u could call it that was so small you could hardly turn around in it. My cake mixing bowl is bigger than the sink in there! Absurdly expensive @£80 for single occupancy. No where to eat nearby apart from 1 restaurant offering a £50 taster menu. Shame as it is a beautiful building but needs a comprehensive up grade.
