    Beautiful historic hotel, good breakfast, very helpful staff, amazing view from the top : a pleasant place to discover in Stown town, even if you are not spleeping here.

    The noise from the AC too old.

    Great location. Beautiful rooms.

    Breakfast was not very good, the food was not my taste. We also stood a lot near cups waiting long minutes for workers to bring new ones, or refill coffee pots when empty.

    Excellent breakfast, confortable room and friendly staff. What else... the hotel is in the heart of Stonetown and at 30 min from the airport.

    Everything was ok.
