  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved that the property was DOG FRIENDLY & that the hotel was beautifully renovated to a very high standard. The food was excellent - breakfast & dinner.

This hotel is a really sweet, newly upgraded gem. The room was clean and crisp. The decor is a wonderful retro vibe. I loved the tea tray with an assortment of teas and treats. The shower took a bit to figure out but has food pressure and heat. The radiator was too warm. The biggest disappointment was that the bedsheets weren’t very soft thought the down comforter was perfect. The hotel was quiet. And they allowed pets. I would stay here again, especially for the price.
