The Victorian house has been transformed to offer eight bedrooms to guests overlooking Devonshire Park and sits in the middle of the town’s cultural quarter.

Owners Chris and Caroline Harwood said, “We have worked hard since we took over the hotel in January 2019 to create an environment where guests can enjoy a ‘home from home’ experience together with luxury and a feeling of being pampered.

“It has, of course, been a difficult period for hospitality businesses and we are hugely grateful to all our guests for their continued support and for taking the time to leave a review after their stay with us.

“We feel that the success of our business is having a great team and the personal service of a family run hotel.”
