"Great Place to read, write and relax.

An absolutely perfect place for my needs, great library and facilities, comfy bed and room, great food and good conversations with other guests."


"Victorian gem.

I stayed five nights last week with a friend and we were both charmed by it. As a keen Victorian, I was delighted to stay in a John Douglas building brought up to modern standards."
