Individual guest reviews

  • The location is really good, one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at and the building is traditional. The lobby areas are very well maintained and the room was spotless, the staff to be friendly and helpful, the water pressure is great in the shower. The ceiling fans could work better.

    Our stay was great, minus the loud neighbors/thin walls, the price was definitely not worth and service was poor. Bathroom were very small.

  • The location is perfect and the hotel is easy to get to. Free coffee in the lobby and a couple coupons for drinks, staff are exceptionally polite and helpful. The beds are very comfortable and really liked the little bar, just off reception. Friendly tour desk 8, restaurants is brilliant.

    T stay closed, price is high and a buffet style option for breakfast would have been a lot more appealing to me than the current menu. The bedrooms are over furnished.

  • The location is fantastic and good quality of shampoo, conditioner, soaps, body lotion. The tour desk in the lobby is also very helpful, liked the room set up and the deep tub.

    Yes this hotel is old and in my opinion its kept very well by all the staff, hot water temperature is fluctuating. More accessible electrical outlets needed the operation of the ceiling fan is a mystery.
