    The service, almost everyone was excellent

    The person at reception when I checked in that night. He only greeted and spoke to the male, who accompanied me to check-in . I was totally invisible. Until I asked him why he did not speak to me, then he was apologetic. This is not acceptable. The second issue I had was when I reported to reception, before 10pm, that the lights in the entrance in my room was not was not working. I was assured someone would attend to it immediately. This did not happen and I had to report it the next morning.

    The history of the hotel and even though it is old it kept up to date but yet not loosing the character. The location for the purpose of our stay was central and easy assessable for our travel.

    The breakfast was ok, I found the that the hash browns where overcooked, but everything else was tasty and fresh

    the breakfast is always delicious

    I was disappointed to be told that I booked for 1 person while I was with my partner and booked online. We got nothing to do with the agent, the online bookings should be clear about everything and not for us to get surprises at reception.
