    Old school hotel with amazing bar and phenomenal bistro. Great value meals and soooo close to the heart of the city. I would definitely recommend this for a nice night out in Rocky. We had the steak and it was really great quality.

    You can't stay anywhere else in Rocky when this quirky old place has a room available! More character than the rest of the city put together, enjoy great beers and great food slap on the riverside with each bar offering something different. Loved it, thanks!
