The location is excellent as it's within walking distance of a number of attractions and restaurants. I also want to say that the service was also friendly and cordial. The rooms are large but definitely need some care. Not a big deal really because it plays with the 1920s theme of the hotel. Wear and tear is expected.
The biggest disappointment and inconvenience was the bathroom. Cosmetic items aside (ie: towel rack pulling away from the wall, dirty and stained tub etc) the water system within the hotel I'd guess has never been updated thus all the problems of 1920s plumbing emerged. Unable to regulate the water temp after 15 minutes of trying was a bit much. The shower and tub itself also fall into the 1920s era, literally. The shower was a small pipe that went up to my chest with little flow and the tub itself I don't believe had received any attention since the building was put up.
I've slept in beach huts, dive hotels etc but for the price, I always had an idea of what I was getting. Having spent $350 CDN for a night, we had hoped to be able to enjoy at least a hot and relaxing shower.
As I said, the location, staff and character of the hotel are great but for the price paid, it simply wasn't a good value. Put some money into this place and it will justify it's price point but as of now, it definitely needs some work.
