As a single lady, was skeptical of staying at any given place. Was very particular to speak to them before arriving, they offered a deal I couldn't refuse. Then when i arrived the place, it was as wonderful & quaint as it seemed on the net. The staff were warm and hospitable during my stay. I would recommend this place...

Stayed here with friends on a short visit for attending a marriage. Nice Rooms and the hotel is very calm and quiet. Staff very friendly and with a good knowledge about the area and they were at service for all our needs. The beautiful garden at the backyard was our place to relax and have fun. Overall and awesome experience.
