Amaze with the unique interior design of the room stayed, a combination between vintage and modern feels. However it located in the middle of the town.

A great alternative to a large high-end hotel!
Macalister Mansion is a really cool place to stay. Each of its only 8 rooms are unique. We stayed in room 3 which was amazing. The bar and lounge areas are quite funky. But dont expect to meet a lot of other guests given only 8 rooms in the hotel.
