Charming heritage hotel with character-filled sitting rooms. Excellent food to which we looked forward each day. Walking distance to town center.
Strong musty smell in room. Many items dusty or apparently not washed frequently - comforter on bed, lampshades, bathroom floor and wall. An exception to this problem is that towels provided were clean and the laundry service for personal items was good and prompt.
