Visitors say that the hotel bar is a true gem. Some even say that the bar itself is worth a visit, even if you are not staying at the property. It has the historic charm of the hotel and typically attracts an interesting and mature crowd of travellers.

Negative Reviews

Musty facilities

While guests like the historic charm of the hotel, they could do without some of the dust. They say that the building is not the cleanest, and that the ambience could be improved with some air freshener.

Hot water is an issue

Reviewers often have trouble with the hot water in this hotel. They regularly find themselves waiting for some time before the water heats up to an acceptable temperature.

Wi-Fi is spotty

Visitors have trouble getting a good Wi-Fi connection in the hotel lobby. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, which makes planning trips and communicating with friends and family a bit tricky.
