Good Hotel Guide Review
Charm and character – perhaps even a queenly ghost – have been passed down through the centuries at this handsome Grade I listed building in a market town on the River Nene. Today a sympathetically updated hotel, it retains a large window and staircase believed to have come from the medieval castle of Fotheringhay, nearby. Classically furnished bedrooms vary in size, from single rooms to family-friendly suites; all are supplied with tea, coffee, bottled water and biscuits. Grazing plates and uncomplicated dishes (seared sea bream, Israeli couscous, say) from the restaurant may be eaten alfresco in the pretty garden. Part of the Coaching Inn Group; see also The Feathers, Helmsley (Shortlist entry).
