    Thank you so much - we really appreciate that you visited and took the time to post a review. Our Wifi is generally excellent - so may have just needed to be rebooted when you visited. Kind regards Mary

    We checked into the old ground hotel this past week and were placed in rooms 104 and 105. I think these are in the basement and must have experienced flooding/leaks. There was a panel on the top of one room that was definitely covering something...More
