The location was amazing. We loved the quaint feel of the hotel and it’s layout. The staff were friendly and the guest lounge where breakfast was served daily was inviting and we’ll kept. I gave a slightly lower rating, as I think the rooms could use a good deep clean. Yes, I’m one of those that ...
