The Shakespeare
Another visit and happy to stay again in future. Comfortable bed, great location and the Saturday night noise wasn’t a bother at all. Bathroom needs work, but it’s all about the hot water and it didn’t run out!

Old English "room above a pub"
I was solo traveling and thought this might be a fun 'guest room above the pub' experience - and it was. The hotel reflects the personality of the old English pub it rests above in decor and ambiance. The room was clean if 'ruffled' in decor, which is what one might expect from a pub. The bed was large, comfortable and very clean. The shared bathrooms could use some refreshing in the paint/tile/polish department but were serviceable. The rooms are on the third floor, so there is no noise I noticed from the pub below. The pub was fun and, again, what you might expect in a neighborhood English bar in vibe, food and drink. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made this a pleasant stay.
