5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Location was great. Parking was difficult on weekend. Hotel was quiet and the rooms were very clean. Electrical switches were dated and some flickering of lights occurred as use increased. Power bars should not be used as a permanent substitute to service electrical needs as potential for circuit overload is HIGH. May wish to conduct an electrical inspection/update to mitigate risk of fire in the ol’ building. Otherwise, a wonderful stay and would not hesitate in booking again!

Liked: Staff & service
Property was close to shops & restaurants. Upgrades required for extra plug ins as there were extension cords. Also, lamp & light fixtures needs to be replaced.

The location was excellent - close to shops and restaurants and close to the river. Price was also excellent. Hotel is dated, however, the cleanliness made up for it and so did the price.
