If you want a bit of living history this is a good place to get a taste of it. The hotel is lavishly decorated in a refurbished Victorian style located in the main street of the old of part of town. The rooms are similarly themed, complete with wooden bed heads, antique dressers and armchairs. Each of the rooms is a different size, with the cheapest Classic rooms having a single, relatively small bed. The rooms with two queen beds are quite spacious and represent good value for not much more than the smaller Classic rooms. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms pretty much immune from external noise. Staff are friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was adequate, if not particularly inspiring. If you want to carry the western theme even further, try the Diamond Belle restaurant which is located in the hotel. Waiters are dressed in Victorian style dress and live music is regularly part of the deal. Parking is available free across the road from the hotel in its dedicated parking lot.
