The hotel is a charming property, and it is located centrally close to lots of restaurants and bars. Would definitely consider again when coming back to the area. Great breakfast, and helpful and pleasant staff. Highly recommended.

I don't remember offhand - we didn't need laundry done at this point in our trip. I doubt that a hotel this small would offer laundry services themselves, but I am confident they would be able to accommodate you somehow.
