8/10 Very good

Comfortable and good breakfast, a bit expensive.
Nice quiet location on an easy to catch bus route into Kingston which stopped right outside. Room size ok. Breakfast was really nice hot and cold buffet though staff could get a bit overwhelmed with several people arriving at the same time. Very comfortable bed. Would have been nice to have a fridge with freezer section for freezing ice bricks for the cool box. Not the cheapest of hotels.

Wonderful Hotel
This was a beautiful historic hotel. The rooms were tastefully decorated and clean. The breakfast was buffet with a wonderful selection. The hotel is close to downtown, with a short walk through campus. Free parking was ample.
