Romantic Hotel, Congenial Pub and Great Beer!
My family and I were very pleased with our stay at the “Faust” over the St. Patricks day and weekend. I just adored the hotel’s authentic, nostalgic decor and ambiance. This historical hotel with its “Somewhere In Time” Victorian romance is absolutely my perfect cup of tea. The entire hotel, pub and restaurant was very clean with attention to every lovely detail. The staff was very friendly and professional. Our room and beds were comfortable and modernized without compromising too much on the antiquity of this American “1920’s” period hotel. The breakfast in the morning was quiet, lovely and there was enough variety for everyone to select from.. even my finicky twins. My husband was impressed with the pub and brewery that is located conveniently at the “Faust” and he enjoyed sampling the many beers. We were able to relax and enjoy a few drinks without worry of driving. Our family enjoyed the menu and tasty, unique bar fare. It is not a dieters menu but it was well worth the calories. The hotel is located within walking distance of many shops, restaurants and sightseeing activities. The parking situation was small and difficult but I don’t know how it could be improved because there just simply isn’t more available property to expand on. It was just easier to simply parked our car and walk. I am well traveled and have stayed at all sorts of hotels, castles, bed & breakfasts, cottages (and you name it) around the world. I relish the experience of the stay and it is more than a place to sleep for me. Of course, I prefer an impeccably clean establishment but I am willing to tolerate unusual nuances so that I can cherish the wonderful adventure of the journey. For those of you who have traveled abroad you understand that a castle may be drafty or that a five star hotel in Rome may be without air-conditioning or that an Asian bathroom has a hole in the floor for the toilet but that is the part of the native experience. If your priority is total modern, new surroundings and demand the conventional, then perhaps, this is not your place to stay. As for me, I left with a smile and would most certainly stay here again.
Unique Quality: Intriguing architecture both inside and out.
