The location is great - there is free parking provided (as stated online)
The coffee maker provided in the room(s) is soo dusty I was too afraid to even use it - there was no breakfast provided ( for both days) -when I booked it stated it would be included. And no cleaning service for the rooms where provided yet I got charged for it. And distance charge - although I live locally. What? The doors where always locked - which would have been fine ( if the people answering the doors didn’t look like they where soo annoyed answering it.
Room upgrade was lovely
No fault of the hotel, but due to Covid-19, there were very few dining options...anywhere.
The staff was amazing and friendly. We made a late night booking because of a family emergency and they were wonderful accommodating us
The floors seemed a little wonky.
Newly renovated very quaint room. Super comfy bed.
Restaurant was open for pick up orders but they were so busy we couldn’t contact them to place an order. The shower had limited water pressure/flow.
The front desk clerk appreciated out physical distancing when we arrived as much as we do during this covid-19 time. he sanitised the debit machine since it wasn't a "tap". He did his best!
We realise that everything has changed since the covid-19 pandemic but paying full price for a hotel that was supposed to have a full hot breakfast should have been handled differently. Since there wasn't that many guests staying there, being able to order breakfast and having it sent up to our door would have been a viable option. Just having a muffin, juice box & granola bar was a poor substitute for a hot breakfast that you paid for. The hotel should have said something on the booking about this or at least offered a major discount to the price
