Apart from the brilliant location, the space and comfort in our rooms, the calm and relaxing feel of the whole hotel, most wonderful of all was the team running this place. From initial booking to final departure, our expectations - already high after reading Trip Advisor - were constantly exceeded. This is a luxury hotel because everyone there seems unobtrusively...

Hello Leafylin, I loved reading your review of our hotel. I'm really glad you liked your stay with us so much. I love that you compare us to "Melrose Place". We get that a lot. It does feel that way (without the drama). I hope you will come and see us again. Sincerely, Darren Ross

I had a friend coming in from South Dakota and wanted to do the whole tourist sightseeing thing. The staff was simply wonderful and so helpful. They recommended a restaurant that evening and it was the most romantic and lovely place ever. We were also booked for the sightseeing bus tour and were given free shuttle to both places. It...
