A Long Walk on Tartan

There is no lift at this historic hotel. You will need to climb four-storeys on tartan pattern carpeting stairs if you are staying on the top floor.

Pre-Auto Era

There is no carpark on site at the Ritz. The nearest carpark is at least a five minute walk from the hotel.

Bleach and Broom

In addition to dated decor, housekeeping standards are not as good as they should be.

Pack Your Flannels

The heating system does not work well in guest rooms. Pack warm clothing to avoid a chilly night.
