Fodor's Review

Even if you're not staying here, take time to admire the extravagant half-timber facade of this hotel, built in the early 17th century and described by the historian Jan Morris in the New York Times as "the most handsome inn in the world." The interior is equally impressive—dripping with ornate plaster ceilings, carved oak, paneling, beams, and creaking floors. Some guest rooms are done in modern style, but others preserve the antique look.
