I was expecting a property of this period to be showing signs of age. Far from it: no squeaky floorboards, good plumbing excellent shower. My main disappointment was that my room window faced the station platform. Although double glazing kept out noise there was a lack of ventilation at times. Overall I would stay here again as the staff were friendly, courteous and professional regarding their treatment of customers.
