We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the Channel Islands off the coast, and wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was very attentive. Everything was clean and well cared for. Nice restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again, and I've already recommended it to family who will be visiting the area next year for a wedding.
