We finished our Coast to Coast walk and were so excited to see the Smugglers at the very end of the walk. The entire building is quirky and t the owner was fantastic. We stayed in room 5 at the top of the stairs, and my husband is over 6 feet tall so it was funny to see him bending over to walk down the hallway and open the door, but once in he could stand up straight and the room was nice and large. The shower and toilet were small, but who in the world could expect anything different from such an old building. The Smugglers had so much character. We booked dinner at 6pm (which was a good call b/c they were completely booked for the evening), and when we asked to change the reservation from 2 to 4, they were incredibly accommodating. Food was phenomenal. Cajun salmon was delicious. The ambience is lovely. Small, intimate with candles.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND staying at the Smugglers. BUT know what to expect. It is a beautiful building with history, and you aren't going to get what you would in certain hotels. However, I wouldn't want that!
Loved our last night on the C2C, and the location and dining made it that much more memorable!.
