Love the English style pub and the boutique brewery along with the heritage building. Rooms were only passable in basic facilities. (No plug in the sink) (An air blower but no heat) Adequate for an overnight stay.

Appreciate it was a good price. Loved the historic building and bar and food. Without taking away the character, they need an update. Curtains to cover entire window. Clean and vacuum, hairs (not ours) on the bathroom floor. Fridge is too noisy during night. Just some advice for future.
