Classic old building in the heart of StonetownOur room was spacious and clean, with a large bathroom and a very comfortable bed. The staff was incredibly friendly and the breakfast was ample, including delicious fresh fruit. The hotel is centrally located to explore the fascinating maze of streets that is Stonetown.
