4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Didn't like the rickety long staircase or our alarm going off at midnight without us setting it. Staff were thin lipped and very brash on the front such as check in and the bar. Bumped into a cleaning lady and she was a bright treat however. Loved the aesthetic of the place! Food and drink were great. We got a smaller than expected room but it was workable. Bed wasn't comfy but the amount of pillows and the provided fan were really appreciated. I would come here again.

Enjoyed our stay in this lovely old hotel. Only one hiccup, we booked a meal in hotel, but had to wait an hour for our meal. Surely if booked time should be allocated. Loved the complimentary breakfasts.
