8/10 Very good

Unfortunately, I was in a room at the top floor. It had a few problems like it took a while for hot water to arrive, and I had a few nates. I do want to say the service was wonderful.

10/10 Exceptional

it is a beautiful property and very unique, you don’t many opportunities to stay in a 100 year old Victorian mansion. Our hostess Tammy was amazing. Very helpfull and very knowledgeable about the property and the neighhorhood. Breakfasts on site were great and property was in a great location wit access to downtown and the cruise port.
