Plaster peeling off ceiling in dining room Lift very slow invites you to go to the 9th floor but that doesn't exist , very confusing to go to 1st floor you push the 2nd floor button. The bed was very comfortable.

The hotel was in walking distance to the Victorian / Steampunk area and a block away from the busy main road, so very quiet.
