Loved the rooms and decor - lots of wood, interesting knick-knacks, pictures etc. This is a hotel with real character and charm. The breakfast was good too, and you are right in the centre of town, which is very convenient if you have just arrived and want a wander.
If you travel in the summer, bring your eye covers for sleeping as the black out blinds leave a lot to be desired - beams of sunlight on your face at midnight don't make for an easy night's sleep!
