Nice hotel, nice room. Had a great supper in the restaurant and a good breakfast. Room was large and had a very big comfortable bed, although room was a little too warm for us. Nice bar staff. We always stay at the Roseate for an evening of luxury. It’s not the cheapest night away, but we always enjoy it.
