5 out of 5
The property is in a perfect location, in the centre of the town. Or room was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. Saw there was an bath and was looking forward to having one but noticed scum around taps, drainage plug... , that could be removed easily with a cloth or soft scrubbing brush. I wiped my finger over a small section to see if it was a stain and it came off easily.

So disappointing

We chose this hotel for its historic link with Jane Austen. It was not enough to overcome the broken toilet (wouldn’t flush), broken phone and horrible food. We notified management about the toilet and phone. They tried to fix but were unable. No offer to change rooms, we just had to make do. Really bad.
