Rooms nice and comfortable great bed well furnished clean throughout, hot water at all times although the shower isn’t very powerful. The hotel does not have lifts so you may struggle on the stairs if you have any mobility issues, Only had breakfast at the hotel, the cooked breakfast was nice and always hot. Disappointingly some items that should have been available we’re out of stock even though a basic menu is in place. Food is currently brought to the table after ordering which appears to be causing confusion to the staff as food comes out at different times regarding if your ready or not and you don’t always get everything you requested. Staff remain pleasant although the lady who seats you appears to have an attitude and any requests appear to inconvenience her. The hotel throughout is pleasant and clean the receptionist was always friendly and engaged every time we went past. The hotel is located in a lovely convenient area of Sudbury and is close to all amenities Sudbury has to offer and local towns are just a short drive away.
