The restoration of this historic building has been carried out perfectly. Comfort, accessibility, quality, service and position are features of this property. The breakfast, included in the tariff is amazing. We have now stayed here three times and look forward to our next visit.

It is situated in a very good location for access to the main street, including the cafes/restaurants we wished to use. Its decor and ambience is very pleasant.

We stayed at the provincial for two nights. When we arrived there was no one at reception to check us in. The staff at the restaurant was very friendly and helpful but they weren’t really familiar with the process so it was very slow. We booked the fly in and out room and knew it was the smallest room and the bed will be pushed to the side of the wall. The bed was comfortable but it was right next to a window, which when closed, still felt drafty.
