Lovely quiet and secluded swimming pool area, comfortable sitting room area on the ground floor. The only down side is that there are really good / helpful staff and others who are less helpful / committed...

This is a historic building in a waterfront location. Breakfast is delivered to your room, which is a nice touch. The rooms are very, very small and the bathrooms are outdated. It is more of a bed and breakfast style. What surprised us was the lack of maintenance and cleanliness. There is a lot of dust on their products in...

This hotel is so charming. It is very old but kept up in good shape. You notice a few things not there from a normal hotel but then you realize it didn't matter. The staff really added to the great experience, every single employee was nice and smiling. We will go back

Our river front stay here was delightful! Perfect veranda setting to enjoy a Henry James or Jane Austin novel, as you watch the boats meander by. This charming inn has been restored to perfection.
