“not a plastic palace but a proper hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a brilliant hotel its not plastic or perfect its rooms are small and it needs money spending on it, but please spend it wisely because this hotel has something about it. The place oozes class, the staff are ace, the setting quiet but well placed for local restaurants etc, and the trip to Chicago by train is so easy take one train to the centre of the City sorted. Breakfast is varied continental in a beautiful drawing room. If you go, go with an open mind and enjoy the place.

Room Tip: book early for a private bathroom

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The public spaces are very agreeable and the staff/owners go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one, but calling it 'European' is stretching the description to say the least. The rooms are small and not very comfortable, the breakfast is limited and the entrance steps definitely not for anyone with mobility problems. Perhaps service makes up for everything here, but without a car a visitor is really marooned.

A pretty cool place if you are not expecting too much. The sitting area in the hotel was nice although old and and the rooms are a little small and decorated in a older theme ... But I enjoyed it. I always have liked quirkey places and this is one of those places. The location is great!
