This spotlessly clean rowhouse turned hotel came in my itinerary after I saw its rating on Tripadvisor and is an extremely good place for a short stopover. The only drawback is that it is a place managed by a single chef and food variety is a question. To help matters there is a small but good outlet named Lovely Hotel... More

Not a place to really have lunch or dinner. I would have loved the place more if they had WiFi. Otherwise the place is really good for the price... More

The rooms are large ( 225 sqft+ for... More

Nice and warm place to stay, we stayed for 4 nights. Staff was very helpful. Food was homely and decently priced. Nice location, overall we were happy. They can do with more staff and taking dinner orders post 4:30 pm as well
