Boutique quirky accommodation in a converted prison

Once the city's prison, this is definitely a hotel with a difference. Many of the rooms are actually converted from the old cells. Not to worry though as there have been many improvements in facilities, services and decor since the prisoners left 20 years ago. Exceedingly comfortable beds and luxury bathrooms are just two of the changes. The hotel has a popular brasserie with quality and value much in evidence. Limited parking space is available.
