I enjoyed a comfortable stay in a nice clean 2-bed room and breakfast in the morning at a very reasonable price. If you book online, the room wifi is free. The good part of this place is it is central to everything. The Town Hall and Queen Street Mall are just a short distance away. Each morning, I walked across... More

My wife and i stayed for 4 nights on the 7th floor at the back of the hotel, no view to speak of, but that was of no consequence as we were staying there only to sleep. The room was small, cosy and oddly shaped with a double bed at one end and a single bed at the other. The... More
