Fodor's Review

Set on the village green only a minute's walk from the famed castle, this 1837 hotel occupies a traditional gabled building, with guest rooms on two stories above the bar and a quiet residents' lounge on the first floor. In the reception area, you may need to ring the brass bell to summon service. The interior is restrained and color-coordinated, with mahogany furniture, antiques, and brass light fixtures. Bathrooms have a striking black-and-white color scheme and are small but fitted with power showers. Locals crowd into both the Lemon Tree Restaurant and the bar (which has traditional music on Tuesday and Sunday and also serves food).
