An opportunity to spend a couple of nights away from home and yet we live just 3 miles away! We had a room in the Courtyard and it was beautiful and the workmanship was fantastic, loved the bathroom! Very impressed. Breakfast was first class - I wish I could get my poached eggs like that. Nothing was too much trouble...

We stayed here last weekend after taking our mother to her new care home. So we were looking forward to a relaxing evening. The hotel is an impressive building, an old nunnery we were told.

We booked one of the new junior suites in the courtyard which turned out to be the most amazing room we’ve stayed in! My wife’s jaw almost hit the floor when we opened the door, the...
