Parking was in a garage that I was apprehensive about especially because I was travelling alone. I refused to get my car out at night because I wasn’t sure how safe it would be. The room was fairly clean. I didn’t sleep very well just because I could hear the elevator through the wall. Lady at the reception was welcoming and helpful.

So outdated and not user friendly, terrible parking, little to no amenities, felt really unwelcoming and cold. No mirrors in the room. The bed was the worst most uncomfortable bed. Lights in the bathroom were blown. Was really disappointed. Will not be returning

Don't let the photo's fool you. There are no period features left in this hotel and it was a complete disappointment. The room we stayed in was advertised as a superior King. The room was small and the bathroom even smaller. Overpriced and under delivered.

Loved the character of the building and friendliness of the reception staff. Didn't like having to park on street across 4 lane road, and pay the parking meter between 9am and 6pm. Also, there were crumbs on the floor behind the curtains, the bathroom was not very clean (e.g., hairball on floor behind door plus basin and walls of bath dirty) and the carpet was stained.
