Sad to leave
Fabulous old world charm, very helpful staff, great food and the room lacked for nothing.Location is wonderful. 2 minutes from the ferry terminal, surrounding area great for shops, eating and walking. Only regret was that we weren’t staying longer.

Great location!
Awesome location! The room was huge, but needed a deep cleaning. I understand it’s very old, but the carpet was covered in blonde hairs, both by husband and I are brunette. The front desk didn’t give us a warm welcoming and then was never covered to ask questions or even check out.
