Stayed for 2 weeks in the Historic for the second time in September 2010 having been there in 2008. The hotel had still the same friendly atmosphere, cleanliness was 100%, location was good as it was near lots of attractions and transport to other locations could always be found.
The staff were excellent and couldn't so enough for you ... like restaurant bookings (Glacier Brewhouse is the best we found) or cabs or a general chat at the desk! All in all we could find no fault with anything,
Would recommend it highly and will get back there again.
