  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Hotel was nice and handy to town and well priced. Rooms were huge. It was dated and the day were there the lift was broken so had to take the stairs lucky we were only on the second floor. Car parking was very tight to get into.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Its a beautiful old building. Rooms are spacious, however it is starting to show its age. Having said that it was a great location for our needs albeit that it's near Hamilton nightlife and can be a bit noisy
