                          • Good location, lovely Quaint Hotel and beautiful heritage house. Reasonable rates and excellent service. The free internet was great.

                          • Good location and great hotel. Externally a beautiful building, very helpful staff and the room was very nice for the price and that was paid and the service was excellent. Continental breakfast was more than enough.

                            The suite was tiny a small sofa.

                            No other rooms were available.

                          • Location is ideal and beautiful, charming hotel is exceptional value for money. The lovely reading room,billiards room, restaurant and balcony add to the ambience.

                            The water in the shower took a little to warm up.

                          • Location and the impeccable renovation of a charming mansion, great Stay, lovely building. And good price and friendly staff. The room was comfortable, we dined at the Charsfield's restaurant and our meals were wonderful.

                            Old hotel in need of refurbishment.

                            Narrow bathrooms that appeared much bigger on the website, restaurant quite expensive.

                          • Pleasant surroundings, wonderful boutique hotel and appointments of the well maintained heritage building. Convenient and good price, nice old style + free internet, the staff were very helpfull and friendly. The bed was comfortable and the food was great.

                            The room was quite small, no beer on tap and the beer was too expensive $ 7.50 for a stubbie.

                          • Location is good and the hotel is a lovely Victorian mansion that has been refurbished. The room is very nice and the restaurant is excellent.

                            Bathroom quite small, the dinner/lunch options too were a little limited and expensive.

                            Very narrow bathroom, expensive breakfast.

                          • Area is very quiet and the Hotel employees are very nice, friendly. Service is good and would recommend to others, perhaps different rooms have a better setup.

                            The bathroom was dirty and the breakfast was ok, and I thought a little expensive at $23.

                            I loved the old building has been lovingly restored.

                            Lovely old building and price was not too expensive either. Shower was not great, food was not acceptable.

The prices are reasonable worth every penny and the personal to reception is nice. The bed is very comfortable, the breakfast are very good.

                            Its a big old house in between several modern office buildings, staff unwilling to undertake services like confirming flights.

                            The relaxed atmosphere, fantastic old building and reception recorded incorrect expiry date for my credit card. Free internet is limited in your room.
