Classic old world elegance at it's best. Glorious stained glass windows and period furnishings everywhere you look. Great value for the colonial room @$210. Definitely will return.

Full of historical character. Decor original with lots of stained glass and art deco lights and lamps. Breakfast layout a bit dated and the introduction of mugs for coffe and tea would be great.

Loved the period decor, and the originality of keeping it to the style when it was built, even down to the creaking stair case. The room was clean but basic (what we paid for) with a share bathroom. Note, bathrooms were individual self contained, soon to be relegated to individual rooms for added privacy. Winter when we were there and had to turn down the heating in our room, did not notice any air con so maybe different story in summer. Free wi fi was a bit hit and miss, but breakfast was included. Well situated in town close to pubs and restaurants. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
