The Wilder townhouse is a boutique hotel set in a beautiful red brick Victorian building which has been lovingly restored. Many of the rooms have original features like high ceilings and sash windows, and the furnishings, artwork and objects are tasteful yet playful; for example there are fun quotes in the room and other places in the hotel, and every detail from the furnishings to how food and drink is served have all been carefully thought out. Breakfast is served on tiered stands like afternoon tea, and there's a well-researched gin and tea menu in the bar. There's a small (free) car park and outdoor tables and chairs in a small garden area out front.
