Location is a couple of minutes walk across the road from the Maritime Museum and about 5 minutes walk to the main railway/bus interchange station. There are also several small pubs which serve great meals within a couple of minutes walk. Parking is not available, however the hotel will give you a ticket to park in the public secure carpark across the road - the rates are vastly reduced for hotel guests.
The hotel is a small old approximately 200 years old traditional hotel - it has 10 guest rooms. Rooms are quite small, however our room was very clean and had everything we needed. The bed was also comfortable. There is no air conditioning, however windows are able to be opened to let in a lovely breeze. We were on the top floor (2 floors) and the stairs to the top floor are not very wide and are very steep. It is very hard dragging suitcases up these stairs. Perhaps lower floors should be allocated to older people.
Breakfast was terrific - not a vast choice, but they will make up whatever you want - and it was great. Every one of the staff we came across was so friendly and helpful - the atmosphere at the hotel was warm and inviting. It is not a big hotel, however it was very cosy and comfortable. It has lots of character and we enjoyed our stay here, apart from going up and down those stairs on the top floor.
