Great property - so close to many local attractions! Close to the town with many restaurants, but even the hotel restaurant was very good - we had the five course tasting platter. Breakfast is excellent as well. Oh - they have Happy Hour too!!! 😊

We had a lovely stay. The hotel was in a beautiful setting & the rooms were clean & well kept. The family style dinner was delicious - lots of flavor and thoughtful preparation. The best part was the large pool fed by a hot spring. It is a unique feature & should not be missed.
