Reviewed 27 September 2015

The location of the hotel is great for walking to local shopping and sites and has lots of character! They are also very helpful in arranging trips to local things to see or a round of golf! The rooms were nice with plenty of space in the rooms. They had a great bathroom with a nightlight which was very helpful!...

The service was excellent - the porter even took care of parallel parking for us. The location was perfect for walking to shops and restaurants, but it was quiet at night despite the central location. Breakfast...

Enjoyed their jacuzzi tub after long days of touring. A very short walk to the Main Str. Area for eating and shopping. Room had everything outfitted in it but wasn't a huge space. Horse and buggy rides across the street too.

Beautiful hotel. We had a suite which had a king bed and a double bed which was perfect for accommodating 3 people. Plenty of room for all of our stuff! It is in the perfect location. Easy to walk to numerous bars, restaurants and shops. The staff is very friendly and helped us send postcards back home! Highly recommend!
