A gem of a place
After a long day of travel, our first sighting of our room left us a little disappointed; but a good night's sleep changed things and we went on to enjoy thoroughly a five night stay. Very friendly staff; a lovely full breakfast included in the price; and a very comfortable ambience to the place. A jazz duet performing at breakfast on Sunday was an especial treat as was live music in the lounge on some evenings. The guest lounge, filled with comfortable lounge chairs and couches, was a great place to relax with a book. Our room (#8) was on the first floor and overlooked the carpark. I don't think the ground floor rooms would be as nice though. We called in to see a famous hotel in the main street nearby - we thought it stuffy and overly formal; by Blue, by contrast, was like a comfortable pair of old slippers ... we'll definitely stay there again.
