This is the second time I've stayed here. It's a charming Victorian era small hotel.
Fresh baked cookies are set out in the lobby each afternoon at tea time. Tea is always available.
The staff are all friendly & helpful. Our phone was cordless & not functioning - a slip due to recent renovations but this es quickly resolved.
The room had two queen beds and was spacious. We had 4 windows!! A big ceiling fan moved the air do it was never stale. The bathroom was a spacious with a separate room for the toilet & shower. The shower was very good. Free wifi and a nice modern tv mounted on the wall had lots of channels.
The only thing I don't use here is the tiny old style cage door elevator - just too tiny for my " claustrophobic " wariness. But it's only got 3 floors and the stairs are good exercise!
Great value for service and excellent proximity to restaurants and shops as it's right on Main street. Plus it's right beside the train station if you're interested in doing the train excursions. Starbucks is across the street. A fantastic chocolate store is right next door. I recommend Seasons restaurant for a truly lovely dinner experience. And the hotel provides a continental breakfast.
I will be back.
