This should be the perfect hotel. Intimate, less pricey than the boutique hotels, beautiful colonial rooms. But some of the details feel like they need some attention. No hot water much of the time. One of those showers with twelve settings that you could only work out if you lived there. Charging $30 for a glass of whisky without warning you of the price. The Internet being intermittent. The breakfast anodyne. I feel a bit bad writing all that as the place and people were lovely. So, overall a great option in the old town, but with 10% more could be outstanding. (Tip: their "small" room has 3 beds which could be used by 3 adults travelling together to make it v affordable).
