Really friendly and helpful staff, the room was nice and spacious and the breakfast was much better than an average Continental, including porridge, hot chocolate and scrumptious fresh strawberries and blueberries (NB: the last will be seasonal bonus). Parking included for one car and great perk, especially as you're right in the centre. All in all a great place and I'd recommend to anyone, family and friends.
We arrived during a heat wave to find the AC in our 4th floor room not cooling correctly. We brought the problem to the attention of Mary who contacted the owner and maintenance man and had a new AC unit in our room by that evening. Thank God! The location is an easy walk to the waterfront. The beds, pillows are so comfortable and the breakfast is great! The bathrooms are small but to be expected for a historic home.
