Nice Hotel, full of history

Pros: The location is the major draw card.
Cons: The doors to the room were difficult to close.
Location: The Hotel is opposite the beach and pier, while being a close walking distance to the shopping precinct and The Lanes.
I had a lovely stay at this Hotel. The room was spacious and comfortable, and aside from the difficulties of doors closing due to old age, the room was in good condition. The staff were lovely and accommodating. The location of this hotel was also a major draw card, as it is right across from the beach and pier, while also being extremely close to The Lanes.
