A quiet, friendly hotel with great character and a central location. The staff was helpful, especially at recommending local dining spots. The benefits of a full service hotel combined with the charm of a bed and breakfast. Don't miss the small plates breakfast!

Beautiful hotel, very clean. We stayed in a deluxe king room and there was plenty of room for the 2 of us. The hotel is centrally located, a 5 minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The staff is super friendly, Taylor was particularly helpful suggesting restaurants and places to shop. Look forward to another visit!
