We absolutely loved our stay! Our room was clean, modern and we loved the fireplace. We ordered breakfast at the restaurant - was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We also appreciated a nice note and plate of chocolate truffles in our room welcoming us for our honeymoon. Would definitely stay here again!
