Needs updating.

Pros: Staff friendly, great location.
Cons: Rooms need renovating, bathrooms need vent fans!
Location: Kingston I thought was a great town with lots of trendy bars and places to eat. Fort Henry is nearby and a great visit among other attractions
The staff were excellent and the room was clean. The only problem I had was that it needs renovating. The air conditioning unit was old and noisy, but it worked (just). The bathroom had no vent fan and it steamed up badly with mold that had been painted over on the bathroom ceiling. Furniture and fittings (bathroom and main room) were outdated (but clean) and window seals needed replacing with condensation blocking some of the beautiful view. Looked like something from 80s in terms of décor. With its wonderful location, a modern renovation would definitely make this a great hotel.

ok accommodations, but too pricey

Fantastic location for the Bluesfest; they need more parking spaces instead of telling guests they "may not find a spot" when they come back in; showers are in need of repair; food and room were ok, not great; too high a price for what we got. Location allows them to ask more than they should. Lowest price hotel for downtown Kingston that was not a total dump. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Very Disappointed

We recently stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights and were extremely disappointed. The decor and room were well below standard given the clost of the room. Up to date furniture, a gym that is open,plus a clean pool are some of the main issues we had. The location and the food were great!
