    Romantic getaway

    Hotel appearance from outside is lovely, quaint and doesn’t disappoint. Understandably, a historical hotel may come with few quirks, in this case, there were several, ventilation system was extremely noisy ( rattling noises), TV signals wouldn’t hold for more than a minute. Additionally, the bathroom door hits the frame. Despite the age of the hotel, these issues shouldn’t occur in a 4 star hotel. We did however enjoy the dining experience at Junction and the outdoor surroundings are very picturesque.
