Our historic hotel is fantastic and our team all love to share information about the history of our hotel and stories from past guests who have stayed at our hotel.

Dear Wendy G So sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent experience at our hotel. We are indeed renovating to better serve our guests and have completed one floor of bathrooms and are continuing with the rest this fall. Following that we will update our bedrooms, electrical outlets and windows. Our team of staff do work hard to ensure that all of our guests are comfortable and enjoy their experiences with us. We look forward to completing our renovations and an opportunity to welcome you back in the future where we will be better able to serve your needs. Thank you for your feedback.

Hotel has some old world charm. However listening to the guy snore in the room next to me was not fun. I could hear conversations and the tvs in rooms on both sides of mine. Otherwise, service was good and friendly.

We spent one October night 2018 in an old-style but comfortable room. No noise overnight. Very pleasant rooftop observation deck overlooking town and a quaint neighborhood. We prefer vintage hotels compared to the more modern Euro-look. We cannot endorse the restaurant off

We are a pet friendly hotel and accept pets however our rooms are not large as we are a CN hotel that was built in 1931. unfortunately our larger suite rooms are on the fifth floor which is accessible by stairs from the forth floor only. I would suggest our sister property The Rodd Royalty Inn as they have larger rooms that are pet friendly.
