This property was originally a mansion with large grounds built at the turn of the 20th century. It has been a hotel in one form or another since 1947. The poperty definitely has curb appeal and the buildings, from a distance at least, are post card perfect. The public spaces inside the "mansion" are authentic, well maintained, and quaint. A perfect location for a wedding reception or large party. And that seems to be what the facility is focused on. Not being a hotel or bed and breakfast as advertised.
But looking closer, the room we had was worn out. A melange of old furniture and bathroom fixtures. Wall paper was peeling. The bed creaked loudly at the slightest movement (discovered in the morning that the bed frame was falling apart). And the heat in the room could only be controled by leaving a window open all night (thank god it was March and not July).
We paid off season rates, and even then, the value was not there.
There are better choices in Victoria near the same price point.
