I stayed here while attending a conference from September 28 to October 5th. As many have mentioned, the location is great - walking distance to many shops, restaurants/pubs and historical sites. Approximately a 10 minute walk to the convention centre. The hotel itself is quaint and yes, it's old. But I really enjoyed the exposed woodwork and the quirks of the historical architecture/layout. Do not expect the space and layout of a modern hotel because you will not find it here. We stayed in a regular queen room and there was not a lot of extra room, but it was clean. The shower was adequate. There is no fridge in the room, which I found odd and also frustrating since we often had early mornings and wanted to have food on hand in the room. We didn't have any problem with noise as has been mentioned in other reviews. There is no pool nor gym.
The best part of this hotel, and the reason why my rating is 4/5 and not 3/5, is the staff. Everyone we encountered was extremely friendly and accomodating. Particularly the staff in the bar - we spent several "happy hours" there and the service was excellent, including very helpful recommenadtions for restaurants and night clubs.
Overall, I would certainly stay here again.
Ask for a room with a view of the old city. Some rooms open over an interior court yard.

As you mentioned, a lot of restaurants, boutiques and activities are walking distance from our location. You have actually stayed in the oldest hotel in Canada and the rooms are not of all the same dimensions. If you ever come back in our hotel, make sure to ask to visit 2 or 3 rooms of the same type so that you get to see that even though it it the same size of bed, the dimensions of the rooms are not necessarly equal. We are happy to see that you have enjoyed your ''happy hour'' times in the bar and at the restaurant. You will surely be more than welcome to come back!!
