I find that the word "charming" is used far too often when describing a hotel or inn. This is a property that personifies what "charming" truly is. We were in town for a wedding, and found the town to be nice if not overly impressive. We tend to stay in hotels and rarely in B&B's, but I'd be hard-pressed to believe it if anyone tried to convince me that this isn't the nicest place to stay in Kingston. The exterior of the building is somewhat nondescript, but the interior is beautiful, from the common rooms to the suite we were staying in. We stayed in the Sandburg Suite, Room 4. The suite was spacious and lovely. The design features were gorgeous, from the high ceilings to the wood floors in the bathroom to the moldings to the window shutters. The jacuzzi tub was a nice plus.
Service was excellent. Breakfast was good. The rear gardens were nice. The location is good, still close to the main downtown area, yet not right in the middle of it.
This place is highly recommended.
