This is a lovely old hotel that is beautifully decorated and trying hard to make the best of what it has. Unfortunately, my experience is that it has rooms that are quite small and old doors that thud loudly at all times of the day and night. I appreciated the large bathroom and stunning view from my room--but learned the hard way that the view came with a price--loud street noise each weekend night of my stay (until 3:30 a.m. one night, and 5 a.m. the second night!) Unfortunately, my visit coincided with graduation celebrations at Southern Oregon University.
The hotel (and all other hotels in town) was full that weekend. I had a "privacy" sign up on my door until 10 a.m., then left for three hours. My room was never cleaned, even though I was gone during 'prime cleaning time' (10-1 p.m.) Front desk explained that they were "booked full" and that was likely why my room was not cleaned. Evidently you only get one chance, and in my case it was between 8-10 a.m.
I ate one meal--lunch--in the restaurant, and it was great. I would have liked to have eaten there more often.
The 'tea time' from 3-5 is literally just that: tea. Period. No snacks at all. That could be improved upon. The evening snack time (9-midnight) offers a snack mix and popcorn. Breakfast was not bad--fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, scones, bagels, an apple or hardboiled egg, coffee and tea. Nothing fancy, but sufficient.
My room was clean, and I appreciated the very clean bathtub (kind of a rarity now even in the best hotels).
I'm not sure I would recommend this hotel. It would depend on how many people shared the room (mine was fine for a solo traveler) and how much sleep you wanted to get.
