I am very dissatisfied with the place. We checked in late, the place was very dark and our room was very dark. Once we came in the room it was very very hot, dirty & messy. It was so late that we didn’t have the energy to transfer to another room. A lot weren’t working like the heater, fireplace, and tap. Washroom was dirty with hair in the bath tub. We didn’t get assistance from the staff. The room we got had no fridge, sheets smelt horrible and doors were broken. You can be easily locked in the room

Disliked: Amenities
We stayed there on a cold rainy day. There was no heat in our room. It took three trips to the front desk to finally get a space heater for our room. I have never paid that much money for a hotel room.. $350 plus tax, and to not have a basic necessity such as heat, is incredulous.

Enjoyed the rustic feel of the room and property. Would have liked to use the fireplace but didn’t see any small fire extinguisher in the room.

Enjoyed the quiet. Could have been tidier. Check-in could have been better organized/timely. Should have better towel racks/counterspace in bathroom.

The room was cute but it reaked of a mixture of smoke from the fire place and cigarettes. There was only half a roll of toilet paper in the room. No microwave or fridge. Check in was smooth. I explained I had expedia perks and nothing happened. I wasn't offered a room upgrade and was refused late check out because they were booked. The 25 dollar food/drink voucher wasn't explained to me about how it worked then after using it they tried to charge me $12 even though my breakfast and tip totalled the $25.

The room was large, rustic and in a very quiet part of the city. 5 stars. We went at the end of summer and with no air conditioning in the room and very small windows we were left to leaving the door open most of the night to cool the room off.
