Wonderful Hotel
This was a beautiful historic hotel. The rooms were tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was buffet with a wonderful selection. The hotel is close to downtown, with a short walk through campus. Free parking was ample.

6/10 Good

Beautiful hotel in lovely grounds. The room was updated and clean. However the smoke alarm flashed brightly all night above the bed and disturbed sleep. I could see flashing images with my eyes closed.The shower was not working properly and the tub drain was totally blocked so the water filled the tub. Both types of scrambled egg at breakfast were stone cold and very disappointing in texture and taste as was the home fries. Shame as the hotel is quite expensive.

Surroundings are very quiet (more birdsong than traffic), clean air, lots of greenspace and gardens, private nooks to relax, old building character, warm service from staff, fast service. I would stay again in a heartbeat.
