We stayed at the hotel last week. We had a suite for my daughter and grand children 2 & 4 years old and a standard room for us. If you have heavy cases do not expect porter service. Instead you take a cart yourself for the luggage. We took the standard room which was clean and well kept but was facing another block of rooms so no views. The daughter, husband and grandchildren had the suite. It was basic but did have a living area and 2 x queen beds. There was only a bar in the hotel which had a very small bar type menu We were recommended to dine in town at a GREAT restaurant called the Red Raven. Fantastic service, great food and reasonably priced. We would highly recommend this to anyone!
The downside was the refurbishment on the cladding that started each morning at eight. The trains would be positioned each of the two nights we stayed with whistles blowing at three AM which woke us all up! The Railway Hotel is more a motel than a hotel with limited facilities but the small indoor pool was OK but not great! Would we stay there again? No unless you do not mind the limited facilities and the standard room price of 155 US or the suite price of 185 US per night!
