    We can only assume that our reservation clerk struggled with the language barrier. If this does occur, we always endeavour to get queries sent by email so that there is no confusion.

    Our experience at this property seems less than many of the other reviews. We found the building quaint, but a bit tired and not everything worked very well. A few obvious things that should have been corrected in our room, had been neglected.More
