Very nice older house hotel on the north end of the main street. Setting is quiet but still very easy to walk to downtown. This is an almost 200 year old house which was not originally built as a hotel so of course each room is unique. The bathrooms are very nice - appears they put a fair amount of effort into this part of the rooms. The smaller rooms are truly quite small therefore if you are a larger person you may find these a challenge. We booked into one of these smaller rooms and did not find it an issue since we were only using it for sleeping. One of our friends booked into the 3rd floor room and though they are not tall they did find the shower a challenge due to the sloped ceilings.
The staff definitely stand out. Always helpful and very friendly. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is as good as it can be. We had a larger group of 4 couples who would not be able to sit together in the breakfast section of the hotel so they set us up in the dining room even though it is normally not used during that time of day.
Continental breakfast was part of our package and actually is quite good. It is a true continental breakfast with hard boiled eggs and yogurts. As well you can get a full hot breakfast which is well prepared.
All in all we would definitely go back again.
