Guest Reviews

My husband and I are musicians and are interested in the paranormal. We stayed in room 23, reportedly the most haunted room. We did some evp sessions and twice when I mentioned Francis, I received a response. The story is longer than that but we had a successful experience. We would love to stay again! Breakfast was pretty ok too

We thought it would be a regular hotel, but having a big kitchen and a proper table made our stay feel...See More

We enjoyed the modern comforts while appreciating the original character. The...See More

Being conveniently located near...See More

Very quaint and unlike any typical hotel experience I've ever had. This hotel was absolutely gorgeous with serious historical/Victorian vibes, and it was such an unique experience to stay here. Camila's pastries (seriously, ask if there's anything she's baked recently because she knows...See More
