Stayed a Friday night in room 3 with heater, electric blanket, jug etc. It would be helpful to have a mirror in the bedroom. Great sleep, friendly staff & a short walk to cbd. Hope to visit again.

Shepherd Arms
Proprietor was very helpful , friendly, and always accessible. Secure off-street parking is provided. Hotel is very quaint, and provides food and beverages in a nice atmosphere.
Hotel is charming but in need of repair to carpeting in the hallways (torn), and paint peeling on the bathroom ceiling. Continental breakfast was supposedly provided, but dishes and utensils were not available, and chambermaid wasn't around to ask for them. Breakfast was just fresh fruit, cereal & milk. It was relatively quiet. No A/C; internet not available in the room as advertised. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Nice place. Lots of street noise
Good location for catching the ferry. Nice pub at hotel.
Street noise was bad. Good thing I travel with earplugs. Easy walk to most things in town. Right near the Botanic Garden.

Parking, Location, Cost
Although we were late in arriving, due to a late ferry crossing (although we did advise by phone), we had to wait for a member of staff to attend the reception. The building seems to be well overdue refurbishment (light fittings, heater - very suspect). When we attended the breakfast area at 8.15am, there was no food left. Although the maid did arrange for cereal and tinned fruit to be supplied to the room.
