We are people who see the glass as half full. We love Victorian style. We love beautiful views. We appreciate sincere kindness in hotel staff.
We need a comfortable bed. We need quiet sleeping environment and we absolutely need good coffee!
This striking pink Victorian hotel is beautiful from the outside, sitting atop Avalon with a fantastic view from the 6th floor balcony.
We requested a king bed room and were first given room 101 just off the lobby at street level. Avoid this room at all cost! Noise from both the lobby and the street are not conducive to serenity. We immediately asked to be moved and the staff was very pleasant and moved us to the second floor room 203. A nicer room, but next to the hotel office and still a bit noisy because of that.
Overall, staff was friendly and accommodated our request to change rooms and a late check out.
This place could easily be a 4-star hotel with an investment in new windows and higher grade of furniture in the rooms; a bit of interior paint to hide past water leaks; and some premium coffee!
