Great experience ”

It is historical hotel and the bed is very big and comfortable can suits 4 people to stay. The hotel location is very good, the nearby parking is not free. However there are 2 safety issue need to get attention by hotel, first is the metal at the room door is sharpe which cut one of my Guest’s finger. Cause the door is heavy, she used one hand hold the handrail, the other hand push the door and happened to touch the sharpe letter M at the door. The other issue is bathtub is slippery even I put the non-slip mat, I was fell over in the bathtub and my left knee is in blue now. But no big injury, just give a reminder to hotel attention to it

Great spot, Great staff, clean and well presented. Room was very small. My husband and I struggled to walk past each other and had to take turns dressing. If you like your cup of Tea or Coffee in a decent sized cup Bring your own. TV was a great size even if you have to sit on the bed to watch it, and the Bathroom was lovely with a great rain shower head. If you have a car with you it is on street parking unless you want to pay $30 for Valet parking. So overall nice place but watch the hidden costs.

The room was very tidy and warm when we arrived. The seating in the small lounge was not comfortable and the tv could be on a lower table to make viewing easier. The lounge area could be set up differently to make it more inviting. The bathroom was tidy but the mould on the sealant and parts of the shower wall was concerning. Overall the room was ok.

We were on the top floor right by the lift so every time it was used we heard it rattle. We have stayed here often and this was the worse experience which is really disappointing but maybe that’s what you get with the special room rate we got, however our son and partner had the room beside and it was twice the size for same price??
