Great location/atmosphere friendly,helpful staff .
This is the third time I have stayed at the Panther, but this time the weather was very unpleasant -rainy and damp! But the atmosphere in the Panther was very welcoming, and the room had a gas fireplace, which made it very cozy. Comfy chair and good lighting to read, good bed with lots of pillows. The bar is very intimate and relaxing, with very good drinks.... and they will bring a great cheese/ fruit plate to enjoy with libations. Very nice breakfast and The breakfast room is light with a nice view of fountain/ garden. Folks at the desk and in the bar/breakfast room are very friendly,, helpful and efficient (big gold stars for Sarah and Darlene!) The bathroom was huge with great tub/shower and fluffy, absorbent towels, and nice soaps, shampoos, etc.
