    The hotel is a little old, but the room was clean and comfortable. The room was a little small but functional. The staff was nice and there is a great little pub downstairs with two fun bartenders. This was the least expensive room we stayed...More

    Queen Elizabeth II stayed here in 1954, but somehow I don't think she'd stay here in 2017. A lovely building and hotel trying to reinvent itself has a little more to learn about the 21st century tourist/traveller. People's expectations are so much higher these days....More

    This hotel is not our taste. Faded elegance coupled with bizarre modern decorations. Located in the dock area with no views - we had a roof view of ventilators. Room large BUT reminiscent of a university lodging circa 1960. Walls nothing more than hardboard but...More
