The hotel could be classed as "quaint", but only because much of the building is quite old and historic. As such (between older and newer parts) the room layouts... More

We decided to break our trip home and spend a night here, and were left wanting to stay longer. The room was great, fresh and clean, with lovely views, although not unobstructed.

Wifi worked quite well and despite power cut / load shedding, the generator in the hotel kept the lights on. We had a breakfast in their restaurant and it was quite nice.... More
