Our Country Walkers tour booked this hotel for the group and it was very charming. It was originally the printing and engraving site and now is a lovely hotel in the historic district. We had a large room with king size bed on the second floor. Very comfortable. Plenty of towels but no wash cloths. No view from our room, but we were out doing things so it didn't matter. Also didn't hear street noise on this side.
A decent breakfast buffet was included. We ate one group dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was excellent.
The location was perfect for exploring the historic center of the town.
