Delightful couple as owner operators. Very helpful and pleasant. Excellent breakfast, private parking close br hotel at a reasonable rate. Able to walk to restaurants and tourist attractions. Many others only a short drive away. I think this is the best choice in this town.

Rooms are well decorated and very stylish. People working there are all kind and very efficient. I strongly recommend this place if you want to visit the area, architecture and vine yards.
