I stayed recently for a girls' weekend. Great location, amazing food, and the innkeeper was wonderful. Can't recommend it highly enough. Rooms are small but cozy and comfortable. Walking distance to downtown which is great. Wine and snacks are available in the evening.

"Rooms are small but comfortable. We reserved the Grose room because it had a private bath and entry."
"Some have their own bathroom"
"Private bathroom, room with good ventilation (Lewis room was bit too warm at night)"
