We had a 7 AM flight, and needed a taxi for 4:30 AM to get us to the airport. They arranged this for us!! We had a free breakfast with our stay but it wasn’t available until 7AM. They staff set us up in the entryway of the hotel with coffee, tea, croissants, jam, fruit and cheeses!!! We felt like royalty!!! This is above and beyond what we expected!!!

Historical site. Hard parking could have been cleaner

Faded glory. Was once probably a comfortable hotel now it's just old. Rooms were too hot. Furnishings were tired. Bedside lamps in our room did not work. No bellboys to help with bags. Breakfast though plentiful was not cooked properly or was over cooked. I could go on. Not worth the cost of the stay. We won't return.

Keyword "Quaint", once you start heading to your actual room. As others have said, the revamped Lobby and Restaurant areas are nicely done but you step back a decade or two in the hallways and bedrooms. In July, the lack of Air Con meant leaving the window open all night. Great for fresh air but listening to seagulls squawking most of the night made for a restless nights sleep. Only 1 small lift/elevator. Friendly, helpful staff.

This was a wonderful suprise. Location was perfect. staff were nice.

Free parking was very misleading with only 8 spaces for a hotel with dozens of rooms. I had to pay to park and scramble to find a space near the hotel. Street side room was noisy. Every floorboard in the room squeaked. Light switch setup was bizzare. Good breakfast though but you pay for it.

I was delighted to arrive to this hotel after staying in a B&B, it was just ehT I wanted: nice lobby/reception area, great bar, excellent locator and friendly staff. The room itself was nice and the bathroom even better. Very large, clean and beautiful. The only issue with this hotel is the wifi, or lack thereof. They advertise free wifi, but that's only for 45 minutes per day and the rooms get zero reception. Quite frustrating when traveling around and wanting to get online. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay but I would not stay here again until they sort out the wifi thing and offer it for free to their guests. It's not 1995.
