Very convenient to rail station-across the street.
There was no hot water because the hotel had not been able to get outside pipes replaced after leaks. The hotel was as helpful as possible. The hotel did discount the room rate. We had to leave very early so they prepared a box of breakfast food for our early departure

I could live here forever
This is a lovely old world charm hotel. Rooms classic and regal in layout, design and décor. I felt like I was in a proper Victorian setting. Bed had a wood paneled canopy, tall windows that work for air, The bath room was unbelievably large with a claw foot tub, separate marble lined shower, et al. 16 foot ceilings, gold plated switches on the wall. If I could attach pictures I would. Food, I bought the B&B plan, The breakfast team of Lizzy and Tracy were awesome, there was more food then you could imagine, 2 kinds of Benedict, smokes fish, and the obligatory European buffet. They have a pub in house. The food was delightful and cooked to my request. I had a pan seared salmon special I asked for rare and it was perfect! Plenty of parking protected by gates so I never wanted for a place to park. As an American we like to have A/C and this hotel does not have A/C. But the open windows sufficed. Fine for me with open window. No lift (Elevator) but they will portage your luggage so this is not a big deal unless you are physically challenged. Surrounding area. This hotel is across the street from a train station and across the street from a mall. I never hear the train in the 4 nights I was there. (Good thing) While the mall is across the street I appreciated that I could walk over to the mall to shop or visit the town sights. There is a wonderfully active brew pub across the bridge and all around the area.

Great for the station
The hotel had a great bar, but insisted in selling beer that had gone off, even though they were told about it. They pretended it was OK. This did not make them more money the real ale they had on was from good breweries, the bar will get a bad name if it continues to keep beer to long. You would not expect customers to eat mouldy bread.

Staff were great. Room wasn't so good
being on the second floor my room was first of all extremely uncomfortable from the heat despite the windows being open the whole day. I slept with the fan on all night The area where the mirror was was unlit so very dark for getting ready and the nearest plug socket was quite far meaning I couldn't use the mirror while drying my hair The shower pressure was abysmal and took a long time to get the temperature correct. The kettle I had didn't work properly meaning it kept boiling until I had to manually turn it off (burning myself the first time in the process) Can't fault the staff though. They were great and extremely helpful The hotel needs some mega updating room wise
