          We loved our deluxe suite. The staff were very helpful. Great laundry service and very inexpensive. We ate dinner at tge hotel twice and had lovely meals both nights. Breakfast was always good, could order off the menu and buffet. Highly recommend this guest house.

          Just about the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at. Everything excellent and the staff were most thoughtful and helpful. This was the off season so we were able to have dinner in the bar in front of a roaring fire.
