  • do you have a room with a bath in the bedroom not in bathroom in the bedroom

    Hello, all of our Luxury rooms have baths and showers. The Luxury rooms are all open-planned and so the bathroom is part of the bedroom, except for "Ivory" which has a more traditional set up with the bathroom behind a door.

  • Facilities for disabled to bedrooms?

    Due to our historic listing, there is no lift at the hotel and all of our bedrooms are reached by stairs. Our bar and restaurant is located on the ground floor of the building and so can be enjoyed by disabled non-hotel guests.
