The Arbutus is a hotel from another era … elegant, warm and solid. The warm ‘sit-down-and-let-me-get-you-a- cup-of-tea-with-brown-bread-and butter’ welcome demonstrates the elegance of another age set in this small and older in-town hotel. Certain positioniong of the foot as you walk the staircase brings out a creak oof the solid wood in the construction. The real find Buckley’s bar off the lobby … especailly when the Irish music is playing. The loaction can’t be beat either … right in the center of town where there is still personality. Away from the tour bus hotels and traffic crowded areas. And leave your key at the front desk when you leave at night … a throw back to another era for sure.
