A travel blog entry by flyrina

... dark colours, and into the L-shaped bistro which also had a courtyard area accessible from the street. The hotel seems to have been recently refurbished, certainly our room was very nice, and they have taken over the beautiful old Thomas Prior Hall for a function room, full of stained glass and panelling – and for just E 6500 you can have a 100-person wedding there, including the bridal suite! We got a bargain at E 59 for our room (NZ 107) ...
