    Just a little more attention to detail

    Staff very welcoming and accommodating. Room needed to be aired out. Pillow or something needed to be washed or replaced.... room smelled like a clothes rack of unwashed second hand clothing found on an op-shop. Price was very good and met my needs

    Character-filled hotel over 100 years old, but although i didnt go to the bar, i wasn't impressed that it had gambling machines.

    Perfectly clean and welcoming, but skeleton staff. Served our purpose well, somewhere to sleep comfortably. No information given re availability of breakfast or other meals, despite being attached to a bar/restaurant. Online it says kettle/ coffee/tea making available in rooms but this was not the case.

    Bed was comfortable and shared bathroom was clean. No tv in the room and no jug and toaster. There was a kitchenette down the hall for making tea and toast. Staff were friendly and helpful

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointing stay. Sheets unironed. Had to ask for more tea/coffee/milk - some of which was sour - and towels. Restaurant was closed and apparently will be for some time. No aircon. Only free view tv. Cars could be locked up but had to be in before 9pm and not want to leave before 8am
