Very helpful friendly staff. Very charming old world. Close to the station and all the shops and restaurants. We wished we had more time to stay and enjoy the facilities. Winter might be nice by the fire reading a book.

Unfortunately we do not have baths in the rooms, only in the 4 bedroom unit. As for the nightlife we do have a pub with pokies and a several bars nearby, and a nighclub that is open on the weekend.
