A quaint old fashioned faded colonial style hotel which has seen better days. There is a very grand foyer but the rooms, pool and other facilities need renovating. Despite this it is good place to stay the staff are lovely and very helpful. Late checkout was no problem eventually extending to 6 pm. It is much cheaper than the Hilton and other big hotels. The bed was comfortable there is a flat screen TV with local channels and BBC World. In the centre of the town can be a bit noisy but good location for the water front, shopping and museums. Stayed for 5 days and would stay again due to value for money.
