Very Good 8.0
We loved the historical character and charm of the buildings. Reception staff need more training. They lack personality and confidence. We stayed in 2 bedroom suite 43. Lots of space and good comfort but need colour added to the very bland decor. At least add some colourful throw cushions.

2 Star
The room Screams out how long can you go without a refit. Spend some money please Down to the Tiny TVs with volume you cannot hear , everything is worn out. The shower head fulling off, because the holder, was worn out 6+years ago, upstairs shower handle fulling off, and leaking out. Beds saggy impossible to sleep in. Ceiling Fan noisy. Building is grand, staff are good, but Heritage group should be embarrassed to present this to 2020 customers.
