A friend recommended a trip to Jamestown when I mentioned it was our anniversary weekend and that my husband's hobby is trains. It was the opening weekend for Jamestown's Rail Town. We were not disappointed.
I called this hotel based on the great reviews they had and was pleased to find out they could accommodate a last-minute reservation. We were greeted very warmly upon our arrival and were very pleased with the comfortable room we had. The bathroom sink was in the bathroom, along with a shower and really cute pull-chain toilet. Yes, it was narrow, but I was pleased that each room had their own!
We had dinner in their restaurant downstairs and found it very lovely. We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was great. They offer a wonderful breakfast to their guests and we enjoyed that, as well. They had recommended spreading lemon curd on the french toast and it was delicious!! I'm going to do that at home!
The only thing I would find fault with would be the bed - it seemed to be sunken in the middle making it difficult not to roll into one another. But I can honestly say there haven't been many places I've stayed where the bed has been to my liking, so I just chalk it up to hotel beds. It just makes me appreciate my bed at home more!! :-)
