Loads of Charm....fabulous historical character, friendly staff.....and a room called Abigail? What more could you ask for. The Palace Hotel is a real find and easy to find. Centrally located in the heart of the Port. Just ask any drunken sailor, whaler, or poltergeist where is the Palace Hotel.
Restored but not overdone, spooky? No....but there's plenty of ghostly yarns filtering through this former brothel/Hotel. Pick a room named after each "lady" that plied her wares in this form boom port of a town. I would stay here at the drop of a hat...or wink from one of the reputed "ladies" said to wander these antique-adorned hallways.
We stayed during the shoulder-season and the staff showed us every room and then picked our favourite. She was a beauty....erotic Victorian charm.
P.S. You won't need a TV in your room......just use your imagination.
