Hotel, formerly a house. C16 core; early C19 front range; top
storey added in early C20; restored in 1980s. White brick
front, timber-framed and rendered rear; slate roof with a wide
eaves overhang and small modillion cornice.
EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and cellar. 4 window range: small-paned
sashes (reinstated in 1980s) in deep reveals with stone sills
and flat gauged arches. A raised brick band at 1st storey
window sill level. The central entry is approached up a flight
of stone steps with shaped balusters to the cast-iron
railings; a 6-panel door with moulded surrounds to the panels
and a rectangular fanlight has a Greek Doric doorcase with
fluted pilasters and a cornice with a triglyph frieze.
INTERIOR: cellar, with walls in a mixture of flint rubble,
stone blocks and brick, has a stone doorway with
segmental-arched head which appears to be in situ and is
rebated for a door. The entrance hall is paved in limestone
flags with black dots and has a good geometric stair with
stick balusters, wreathed handrail and bracketed treads. A
large semicircular-headed small-paned sash window on the rear
wall, which formerly lighted the stair, has been blocked by a
later rear extension. A small wing, at right-angles to the
front, has the ground-storey room lined with square Jacobean
panelling, probably re-used, and an internal chimney-stack
with a stone fireplace surround, considerably restored, but
with an original decorated spandrel. A change in the brickwork
above the 1st storey windows is evidence of the Edwardian
