The location is ideal. Everything you want as a tourist is walking distance. The staff are friendly and helpful- are those in the coffee shop), the rooms a good size, generally clean, with nice bathrooms. Towels, robes and hairdryer all decent, good lighting for make up. Two nits from me- I like more storage in the bathroom for all those bits that are "essential" ( at least for this female traveller) and the wardrobe was slightly on the small side for 2 of us on a long weekend stay. My husband used the top of the wardrobe to store clothes and it was a tad dusty. As I said, minor and would not stop me from recommending this place to anyone. I would certainly return. Read less

The staff did try to offer local suggestions until they realized we were meeting friends on the Hill. I cannot wait to stay at the Godfrey again... :-) Read less
