Looks a splendid place to spend a couple of nights. The elegant architecture seems very well preserved and is nicely presented in your composition. Pity for the cars, but it is a hotel after all :-) Lots of detail to e seen.

Hello Chris, This is a very attractive building with lovely balconies and beautifully framed entrances. The color is good and the white clouds provide an excellent background for this shot. This is a very inviting looking place to stay. Very well done. Regards, Roger

Well taken Chris - what a great old pub!
You've managed to get it right, even without the sun on the front. Great sky.

Good Morning Chris,
A most elegant hotel, beautifully captured with a well-judged dof. The slight angle allows us to judge the depth as well as the facade of this fine building. Although some would not appreciate the cars in the f/g, for me, this type of building is associated with, and relies on people. Therefore, the cars are an integral part.
Have a lovely w/e,
