We stayed two nights. The hotel is centrally located & everything you might wish to do is in easy walking distance. We arrived late (thanks (NOT!) to a cancelled Interislander ferry) & it was somewhat eerie to be told by the receptionist as we checked in that she would be going off duty in 10 minutes, just let ourselves in & out. Our large room was on top (4th) floor, accessed via quirky ancient lift. Once we took the stairs, that WAS spooky, it felt like we were the only people in the hotel. The room's claw foot bath was great, as was the double shower. Breakfast was delicious, cooked to order, though somewhat disappointing that the fruit was very basic tinned, possibly due to not enough customers to warrant fresh?
