6/10 Good

Beautiful historic hotel. There is some interesting history and connection to the Royal Family. Main entrance was under utilised. Check in was located in the pub downstairs. Room, hallway and entrance was poorly lit. There was a bit of a damp smell in the hallway. Room also had broken lights and balcony had cigarette butts on the flooring where the drain is. There is also no parking facilities available on the property. There is a paid car park next door.

Not much to say staff were efficient. The bed was comfortable. Hotel needs to be refreshed fittings are old and the carpet and curtains need replacing. Smell of damp in my room.

4/10 Fair

We were informed at check-in that karaoke in the bar underneath was 9 pm to 2 am. Our room was directly above the garden bar and we were kept awake all night. This room should’ve been heavily discounted and only available for booking with prior knowledge. Bar staff were friendly at check-in. Room was dated but clean. Felt more like a backpackers than a hotel.

2/10 Poor

OMG !! I wouldn't have minded if it was cheap it was not $150 per night, and I may as well set my bed up in the pub that was underneath, the noise was horrendous, and to describe the walls as paper thin would have been an exaggeration of thickness......Having said that all the staff I met were really great :)
