Quiet hotel on edge of town
Very personalized,friendly checkin where you sit down comfortably at a desk while they take down the info they need (checkin is on the grand floor of an old house). The new 4 story "tower" is about 100 feet away and located on very green lawn/garden area and all located on the same spacious property. Rooms are clean, modern,have tea/coffee maker, ac works well, cold AND hot water in shower, WIFI works well and TV has more than just one channel. Spacious porch with chairs. Restaurant with balcony & small bar are on the ground floor and both open onto the peaceful grounds of the hotel. Because of our itinerary we stayed at the Herdmanston 3 separate times and all staff were always very welcoming. Security staff are always around to make sure you feel safe. Negatives? No elevator so if you have a lot of luggage or are in your 60's as we are you get a good workout if your room is on the top floor. A pool would be nice and they have ample space to put one in. Because the hotel is located in a pleasant neighbourhood bordering the edge of downtown, there are no restaurants/bars nearby but taxis are cheap and hotel will call one for you. We found the food at the hotel restaurant good so were quite content to eat there but other people might want more choices if staying more than just a few nights. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.
