This is not just a hotel, this is a living museum. Intertwined with decadent art, lavish antiques and a serious eye for detail- this hotel was beyond any hotel. A historical site from the late 1800's, this hotel underwent a deep rennovation in 2017 to manifest the most elegant steam punk-esque, victorian inspired venue; while simultaneously bringing out the rich history of the area and culture. From the outside it appears to be "an old hotel", but once you walk in you will be engulfed in the magnificence of fine art, collectibles, antiques and charming customer service. I booked a reservation with my partner here assuming the photos were too good to be true. To our surprise, the photos did not do this place any justice. This encouraged me to do some digging on the history of the hotel. (it's worth a google!) From check in to check out, every single thing went as smoothly as can be imagined. My partner and I dined in the restaurant downstairs and satisfied our hunger on a marvelous cheeseboard with local bread, fish and chips, a hearty steak, and local wines. (compliments to the lady chef who obviously took a great deal of pride in her culinary arts. ) Our room was G. Dower's room, which had a stunning claw foot bath tub, tasteful toiletries, every amenity we could have wanted in a meticulously clean and well cared for room. Unfortunately, I've run out of character space. See a full review on Google or Trip Advisor.

Decor was AMAZING! Beautifully refurbed. So many things to take in. Steam-punk glam everywhere. Food was also excellent. Staff are trying but they fell short - poorly informed - slow service in bar. Couldn’t provide current wine list - most beers Not available but.... be patient and it is well worth a visit 🛄
