Check in was chaos with our room not ready and different excuses being made. You will be allocated an inferior room with fake beams and tatty modern furniture in an annexe if you don’t specify the exact room you want ( but be charged the same price ) Parking is very tight , we were glad we took our older car. Our bathroom was little more than a broom cupboard with a pokey cubicle and no water pressure. Any ghostly activities are more likely to be other people snoring , plumbing issues or the battery dying in your smoke detector. Food here is pretty awful , very limited choice for breakfast . Bar meals only in the evening due to lack of staff. No nice finishing touches or attention to detail we get in similar priced hotels elsewhere. It’s a beautiful old hotel let down by poor management relying on the character of the place to fill it .
