This hotel was a real "find" for us! It has character, wonderful ambience, and cheerful, helpful staff. It is located in a most central location, within walking distance of seemingly every shop, restaurant and attraction that one would wish to visit on a short weekend vacation. The view from our room was spectacular; continual ship and people watching opportunities if that's what you want. We sprung for the lakeside luxury king room and it was worth every penny. We were a bit worried that the noise level would be intrusive, but the rooms are wonderfully soundproofed so that you don't hear the outside world at all: even the occasional passing train slips by silently.
