Highly recommended
We stayed here at the start of a family holiday and were impressed with everything! The beautiful historic building, our super comfortable suite and the delicious food. We would like to mention Sandra in particular, who was so welcoming and made our too short stay so memorable. 10 out of 10!

10/10 Exceptional

There was absolutely nothing what we did not like! We loved the history of the place, it was unique and the staff Ben, Sandra and Bell were wonderful. Always there with a smile and little ideas what to do next. The room was huge and super clean. So many details every where and so quiet. Outside is the hustle and bustle which is super great and inside is peace and quietness! We would come back any time.
