AAA Inspector Notes
Renowned for its tradition of afternoon tea, this landmark Victorian-style hotel was built in 1908. Rooms vary in size with some bathrooms being compact. Don't miss taking a stroll of the shops. Most rooms and public areas have been recently updated while keeping the historic charm for which the hotel is known. The landscaped grounds and flowers are a photographer's dream during the spring and summer months. Smoke free premises. 464 units, some two bedrooms. 8 stories, interior corridors.
