This hotel has a wonderful Victorian charm.
The rooms aren't very big, but what they lack in size, they make up for with warmth and clean comfort. Check in was a bit slow, however, waiting at their al fresco restaurant made it a bit less tiresome.
The staff is friendly and polite and the food is good. The breakfast although sumptuous, is not as wide in variety, as what you would expect from a hotel at this price.
The main hotel building, although more than a century old, has been maintained very well. Its well located and the nearest shopping plaza is barely a 10 minute walk away.
I stayed here for 3 nights while on a business trip and I would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.
