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.

Very welcome stop-off
Pleasent traditional quality feel to the hotel, staff were very helpful and you really couldn't get a better position (ten steps from train station). Planning to stay there again. Didn't eat at the restaurant but the breakfast was excellent.

Train station hotel
This hotel was chosen because of its proximity to the train station. It was right next to it. Our room was on the 2nd floor so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs as there was no offer of help or a lift. The room was clean and fairly comfortable. We tried to order dinner in the bar from the menu that was on the table but was told that the menu was not available so we went out to another restaurant in town (short walk). The shower in the morning was pitiful with a small trickle of water - no pressure. If I wanted to boil water in the kettle I had to hold the switch down or it switched itself off.
