Shelley's Hotel Review

Centrally located, this well-maintained hotel has bright and spacious rooms with generous windows and excellent views. Hearty breakfasts are served in the conservatory, and the service is genial and efficient. Poet Percy Bysshe Shelley is said to have stayed here during his honeymoon—and apparently left without paying the bill (he later mailed £20 of the £30 owed).
