Loved this old hotel. It’s full of history and ambiance. If you can’t do stairs then it’s not for you. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant served wonderful food. Loved the feel of a days gone by resort.

The hotel is perfectly situation on the hill overlooking the small town and is lovely and peaceful.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and all of them somehow left the impression that they loved and cared for the hotel
We stayed in 12a , not the haunted part of the house it seems, and this large room with a lovely big comfortable bed and a huge balcony was actually just fine.
We had dinner in the hotels Lazy Trout restaurant, and although I was reluctant, the dinner was excellent. Well presented by a lovely waitress, well cooked and tasty.
Yes, the grand Old Lady is in need of some care and attention, but she has a charm and character about her that is difficult not to like. A throw back to the past where chandeliers, huge art works and sweeping staircases to the upper floors were Vogue, this has something about it and I would happily stay there again.
