Went there for a wedding last week - this place is awesome. Beautiful rooms, excellent food and atmosphere. The staff was awesome. This place also has a great history, including it was once owned by a Nazi spy.

On a cruise with Azamara, we were brought here one evening for "An Amazing Azarama evening" We were able to tour the historic mansion and enjoy a jazz band and entertainers in the garden. Memorable.
