The Good
Among the reviews used for this analysis, several guests enjoyed the historical character and period decor throughout the hotel.

Several guests found the hotel centrally located in the downtown area and conveniently placed for walking to attractions.

A couple of guests described their rooms as basic but comfortable and several guests said the rooms had been updated. One guest said that the beds, furniture, carpets and flat screen TVs were all brand new as well as the toilet and sink in his room.

The restaurant served basic but good food, but the bar was an exciting feature to several guests who found it entertaining and lively with reasonably-priced drinks.

Several reviewers complimented the staff for their friendly and helpful service and guests who had problems were well looked after by the hospitable staff of this hotel.However, it seems that some of the staff were not all that outgoing or attentive.

The Bad
There were some common concerns found for this property, among the reviews sourced for this editorial.

A couple of guests found the air conditioners to not be all that efficient in the hotter summer months and some guests mentioned that the bar can get noisy, although there were not many complaints about the bar noise.

Some guests found cleanliness lacking in their rooms and mentioned stained and dirty carpets and dusty windowsills but these seemed to be isolated experiences as recent guests mentioned the rooms were clean and updated with new carpets.
