8/10 Very good

This is a nice, charming hotel with friendly and helpful staff in a good and convenient part of town with free parking! A big plus. The grounds are lovely and there are great places to sit around the property. Our room was on the road side and it was a bit noisy - traffic noise. And this is an older property - a lot of work has gone into maintaining the character but you get the sense that difficult decisions have had to be made on a number of maintenance issues. All that said, we would stay again but would ensure we had a room not on either of the roads.
