We have stayed here on several occasions over the span of 10 years, the most recent being this month. It hasn't changed a bit! The rooms are generally spacious and authentically decorated. Old wood floors add to the charm and to the creakiness. Breakfast is set out on a tray at the time you designate and consists of your beverages selected (coffee, tea, juice), a basket of buns and breads, yogurt, jam and butter. They also provide a variety of boxed cereals on a side table. It is possible to eat in your room or on the patio tables, but we like the atmosphere of the old tavern room.
Be prepared to be without wireless internet and TV or phone in your room.
The location can't be beat, since it is in the center of town and within walking distance to the river, the coffee shop and several restaurants - 2 of them quite fine.
