Beautiful property! The rooms are very nice and the hotel is well maintained. It’s in a good location and has a great feel. The breakfast is good (you make a reservation the day before) and the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. We had help at reception booking our COVID tests for our return trip home and it made our stay much easier. I wish we had longer than two nights there! I cannot say enough good things about it and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
