Good location within the heritage zone and convenient walk to a lot of eating places as well as heritage sights. But do not have own car parks so left to your luck to secure a roadside public car park. Advised the hotel staff that they should at least have available parking coupons that can be purchased by the guests as a convenience and service for the guests.
The hotel have a cosy courtyard where you can hangout and have your cup of tea. But the deluxe room that I stayed in was located at the front which is exposed to the traffic noise which are pretty loud. The front desk was very accommodating when I asked for a change of room the second day and the new room located at the back was much quieter .
Overall enjoyed my stay and the staffs were friendly and helpful.
