I stayed two nights for business reasons, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this hotel. When in small towns like this, there usually aren't any choices that are this nice. It is an old well-maintained building; two floors of rooms with about 8 rooms on each floor and a rooftop garden area on the second floor.
My room was on the second floor and was very large. The entire hotel has very high ceilings making it feel even larger! The windows were huge with stained glass arches at the tops. Very beautiful. The room was spotless (and I'm picky about this) and everything worked well.
My only complaints are minor. My room (number 8) faced the Main Street of town and was noisy, but it didn't bother me too much. The two beds were very small and if you are a large person, you need to ask about this because my bed was only 6 feet long and about 4' wide. I bumped my feet on the footer of the bed a few times. It would be nice to have a fridge in the room. I realize they want to keep it true to its time period, but really, there is already a TV there, so please add fridges. Lastly, the continental breakfast was one to pass on. Only small muffins and tea. May as well not advertise it. I at least expected some fruit.
Some other reviewers complained about a lack of personal service. I found the employees to be courteous enough. I don't like having staff bug me though, so I would not appreciate staff "checking" on me or whatever others were complaining about. I just want to check in and out without hassle and help IF I need it, but since everything was great, I didn't need help so I was quite satisfied with staff.
Overall, this was a spotless, beautiful place to stay. I'd love to stay there again.
