A quaint hotel in a fabulous location. In need of a little TLC but otherwise a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Staff were friendly and helpful and room was cosy and clean with a comfortable bed. We had dinner in the restaurant and breakfast in the tea room. We would definitely stay here again.

The Staff ladies where efficient and very friendly Loved the atmosphere, eating a very nice meal at he fire place . Whilst the old guys were having their happy hour at the bar. Good old fashioned cosy and relaxed atmosphere You don't see that often own modern hotels. Love the way the old building was made to function in modern times. Not so easy and you can waste a lot of money. With the great location too, was nice to go for walk-about. Keep up the Good work ! Jon & Ariane from Perth WA
