Beautifully restored hotel, both in the downstairs bar area as well as the rooms. We booked very last minute and think got the last room which was pretty small. That said it was beautifully appointed, clean and comfy and was perfect for retiring too after dinner downstairs. Shared bathrooms were always clean and again, beautifully restored.
