At this 14th-century inn, "ghosts of the past linger," said Tom Chesshyre at The Times (U.K.). Both Oliver Cromwell and the king he dethroned stayed here; later, so did Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Following a major redesign, the 86-room property reopened recently with freshened rooms and an overhauled spa, but the old beams and sloping floors in the main building create a "frozen-in-time atmosphere."

Though the wine and cocktail bars offer light dining, "the main attraction" is the bar and grill, with its old oil paintings and "eye-catching" antler chandeliers.
