We only had one night, but cannot speak highly enough of this place and our hosts. We used to have antique shops and how Michelle keeps the dust at bay... But she does... It was not "tired" or anything of the sort. The breakfast was certainly tops with individual butters and Jams, fruit pots and yoghurt, also breakfast bars, assorted cereals, fresh thick toast bread and raisin toast.. Certainly a cut above what I manage at home and indeed at many hotels. If you appreciate plastic novotel type hotel rooms, with no outside (gorgeous) gardens and different rooms to lounge in, all beautifully appointed and true to period then book elsewhere. The whole experience was wonderful, the hosts could not do enough for you without being intrusive... Well done really on all counts.
A beautiful renovation. We were ready to go home after a couple of weeks on the road but we were refreshed by this stay. To sit anywhere in the house and see all the history was fantastic. The gardens are beautiful. Although old 1837, don't worry the plumbing is new. Good water pressure! Richard was the perfect welcoming host with lots of stories to tell us but then left us to enjoy our stay. We'll go back in a flash.
What a beautiful place to look at. Just a few things that I would like to say. There is a presence of spirits in this house. Voices can be heard in the front door way. Lady voices. Taps turn on and off in the back bathroom. Lots of little things happened. A few other experiences happened too, I know a lot of people aren’t into this sort of stuff but I’m only explaining my own experience.
Overall found this place very disappointing. From the outside it looks fabulous. Well kept gardens and a beautiful historic house. Unfortunately inside, it’s a bit rough.. our room was large and the bed quite comfy, but not really very fresh or clean.. Breakfast was actually something that reminded me of my European travel days back in the 80s and early 90s.. cheap cereal, a couple of slices of bread, margarine that 50 other people had used, complete with their crust remnants, and jam that had crystallised because it had been there so long.. certainly not what I would expect for $160 per night..
We spent the weekend in the 1800’s with 2020 hospitality. This was our second visit we liked it so much. Our daughter spent ages wandering the house and yard exploring and taking photos for her art projects .Thanks for another great stay
