Positive Reviews

Due Praise For The Staff

It is widely stated that the staff help save this locale from its lower qualities. They are beyond helpful and friendly, always willing to go out of their way to provide guest comfort. Well done!

Come For The History

If you love historical buildings, this is a must-see Once a regular stop for the Royal Family in the 1800's (and rumour has it, Benjamin Franklin as well), remnants of its historical majesty are reflected everywhere as this building has retained much of its original character. Remember to bring modern luxuries such a rare old gem might not provide, such as toiletries and items like hair dryers.

Superb Location

Ideally situated on historical High Street, you'll be in perfect shape to explore the area's dining, shopping and cultural features within walking distance. Ask for an upper floor room with a balcony if possible to enjoy a more pleasing view.

Negative Reviews

Speed Up The Renovation!

Although there are signs a gradual refurbishment is underway, these improvements cannot take place fast enough! Toilets don't properly flush, the paint is peeling off the walls and the bathrooms are ill-equipped for anyone to prepare for the day Showers have multiple issues. Sharing a bathroom among several guests is not pleasant and not all rooms have private restrooms in them. Carpeting is frayed, floor tiles are broken, furnishings are damaged and decor is badly dated. Parking area is full of potholes.

Breakfast Too Expensive

On-site breakfast is not worth the price at all. Instead, walk outside and you will find restaurants around the corner of a higher quality and lower cost.

Double Rooms

Double beds are twins pushed together in some rooms, but that is not acceptable to everyone. Ask at booking if that is an issue for you.
