... definitely overpriced. Our room was clean, quiet, comfortable, etc. and the hotel appeared to be one of the nicer hotels in the area. At first i thought it was overpriced, but considering the rate included breakfast and dinner, i realized it is somewhat fairly priced. Also, the entire town is a tourist trap, so all in all, i guess the price was reasonable. One great service they offer is - the hotel porters help you bring your stuff to the train station. Also, they help you deliver your laundry to and from an off-hotel-site laundromat (you should tip them, but it ends up costing much less than if you use the hotel laundry service).
Oh, one morning the hotel lost power (apparently it happens pretty frequently in this town) but the staff/breakfast proceeded seamlessly. Can't really blame the hotel, but just wanted to point it out as an fyi, in case you are planning on going to this town. We had just returned from camping, so our headlights came in handy :)
