Lovely property that needs some...

Liked: Great location. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Disliked: The room we got was dusty - as if it hadn’t been used for a long time. There was no table lamp at the writing table and the blinds next to the table was broken - hence the writing table had absolutely no light streaming in. The towel rack in the bathroom didn’t heat up at all during our 3 day stay.


Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

Liked: Staff was great, particularly breakfast crewGreat breakfast
Disliked: No lift/elevator- why do they not tell you this? We were 3rd floor walk up- over 50 steps.Kinda a bar, but no bartender, I think you ask front desk staff to make you a drink?

An old world hotel in...

Liked: The hotel was in a great location and staff were excellent. We enjoyed the very good breakfast included.
Disliked: The room was very small and located up many, many flights of stairs. There was no lift in the building.
