8.5 Great
Cons:The bed was terrible
9.1 Excellent
Pros:Inside and out hotel was beautiful. Even though we were a few hours early and not able to check into our room yet they still allowed us to park in the hotel parking lot so we could go out and spend some time walking around the area and visiting the museum. The staff that I dealt with were very pleasant and courteous. There is a very nice restaurant located in the basement of the hotel and is accessible both from the lobby and from outside. The food was good and staff was courteous and the prices were not too bad at all.
Cons:It’s an older hotel so there is no elevator and no air-conditioning. I have a bad back and stairs are difficult so having to go up to the third-floor was not easy. Luckily it was cool in the evening and overnight so the lack of air conditioning turned out to be Ok. It also would have been nice if there was some kind of complementary breakfast like Continental or just a small buffet but unfortunately there was not. Although they do give you a card when you check in that it allows you 15% off your meal in the restaurant that is located in the basement.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Virtually everything - the place reminded me of the places my parents would take me as a kid when on holiday. Parking lot, very well kept gardens, friendly check-in with lemon water available and coffee in the morning. Comfy, old school decor and furnishings - but everything is clean and kept up - it's not at all tatty. Ice machine, vending machines, and a simple but immaculate room. I also left my laptop in my room by accident and the maid made a point of rushing after me to return it - so, honest staff as well.
Cons:My pillow could have been a bit denser!
8.8 Great
Pros:So charming!
