Great location, wind noise was pretty bad, the windows and our rooms door were chattering whenever there was a gust, but there is a severe weather warning for wind so I’m not too harsh on them for that.

We like the old world charm and decor of the hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were given a complimentary glass of bubbly as we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. The hotel is situated close to restaurants and shops.
