Comment from Hotel Management

We are so glad you loved the staff (and tavern!) and were very appreciative you shared your comments with our staff about the door. Our handyman looked at it today and found the door was off its track so its been reset and is now much easier to open. Our sincere apologies but we hope you will come again!
