After almost giving up on finding an old Victorian style hotel to stay in for one night before heading home, my wife found the Palace Hotel. When she started reading the reviews on TA which gave its history as a formal brothel, it got my attention. (I have always wanted to spend the night in a brothel....) Check in at this hotel was straightforward and we were very impressed by the front desk clerk who was very helpful in suggesting where to go for some great photos and a great place for dinner. After we managed to lug our stuff up two flights of steep stairs, we found our room. It was great! Even an old style bathtub! The bed was very comfortable and I even found out that they provided 1/2 & 1/2 cream in the fridge for the in room coffee. ( You just don't get that in hotels, even the high end ones!) Regretfully, we only spent one night in this hotel, but we will return. Caution: If you plan on imbibing, be careful in navigating your way up and down the stairs....
