Great old Victorian hotel
Very comfortable stay, the hotel was originally built in early 1900s. Through the years it has been updated but still has an old Victorian vibe.
Glennda, ca2 night business trip
Very Good 8.0
We loved the location (quiet and convenient - walking distance to the beach, the harbour and downtown), the character, charm beautiful art decor and the fact that there was a great restaurant and pub attached. Service and cleanliness was excellent. Our room was small and bare bones but we didn’t spend much time there and the bed was comfortable.
