This was booked as a last minute weekend away. The location of the hotel was great and the staff were very hospitable. The breakfast had good choice and we would happily go back and stay at Albus in the future.

Friendly service from arrival to helping reserve for dinner to checkout. The great location made 10-15 minute walk to anything. One elevator and small breakfast room overtaxed at times during the mornings
