where Darwin and Dickens walked...

charming old fashioned hotel a little worn and torn but that kind of adds to its charm as its an historic building. lift was broken and the stairs are old and creaky. restaurant dinner was excellent. all staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, delightful in fact.

Good for budget accommodation

My stay was fine, staff were nice, but the walls were very thin and I could hear loud music and doors opening and closing frequently.
