We chose to stay here for our first two nights of honeymoon. We found our room to be luxurious with the fire and comfortable bed, and loved the added extras of tea and breakfast snack early in the morning - ideal for our jetlag! Staff were pleasant, the inclusive breakfast was 'gourmet' and tasty and it was handy to have access to DVDs. It's within minutes walk of local restaurants, which are safe to get to, and certainly has much more character than the usual chain hotel.
On the downside, it is on a busy main road BUT - and this suprised me - the triple glazing means you don't hear the traffic at all! Our room was small, but this made it cosy rather than inconvenient and the decor makes it feel like a luxuriant 'home from home'. If you don't like the gourmet breakfast on offer, they will make you something else at a cost, but this seems reasonable considering every other hotel we stayed in Canada did not have any kind of breakfast included at all.
