‘Such a beautiful place! We only stayed one night, but it was one of the best on our entire trip. Staff was very friendly, rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The meal was fantastic, and had items clearly marked as gluten free or vegetarian. Made meal planning very easy. Breakfast was included in our stay, and was fabulous. The scenery was great from the restaurant. The night porter was very helpful to us as well. Great place to stop.’
