  • 6.0.Good

    Excellent location.

    This trip was for a quiet and reflective time before yearend. I read about this hotel before departure and I can agree with the helpful staff. It could be because of the covid limited housekeeping routine, but I thought the cleaning was not thorough. The bed was too soft for me. The hotel was generally well maintained but quite a few details needed to be attended to. The location is excellent.

    Great mid-week stay

    Staff very friendly and helpful. Location perfect. Very comfy bed! The building has seen better days but was clean and comfortable. Squeaky floorboards and (very) frayed curtains which didn't quite meet in the middle.
