Positive Reviews

Good staff & location

This hotel has charming and gracious staff who esteem the guests highly and place their comfort and convenience above everything else. Staff members Erin and Hannah, serving in the 1886 Cafè & Bakery have been mentioned as being particularly accommodating. Many guests have appreciated the location of the hotel, because the central location puts all the local places of interest within easy reach.

Excellent bar and restaurant

The Bar and Restaurant facilities in this property are traditional and really enjoyable. Guests have spoken appreciatively about the choice of food and drinks available, as well as the excellent service provided.

Old world charm

This historic hotel is full of the charm and character of a bygone age, when life was lived at a slower, more leisurely pace. Many guests speak appreciatively of the atmosphere and character of the building and how enjoyable it is to stay here. Some charming, period features, such as high ceilings and floor to ceiling drapes, have found favor with guests.

Negative Reviews

Outside noise

Some of the guests who happened to be awake at 5 am in the morning have spoken of the noise from the garbage collection activity outside, which is very noisy and disturbing, making it extremely difficult to enjoy rest at that hour.

Mold

This is an old hotel and one recurring problem of which guests speak is the fact that there is a strong smell of mold in certain areas of the building.

No refrigerator

Guests miss not having the facility to chill drinks in the rooms.
