The place is beautiful! Small, but so comfortable! The sheets & shower are fabulous! The gas fireplace in the room is just perfect. The location can't be beat and the people that work there are GREAT!
The problems we had were: No working televison--- they have lots of technology, but it seems that they don't all work. The t.v. had a mind of its own. In the end we got so annoyed, even after the hotel engineer came up to try to fix it, we turned it off- well actually, it just shut itself off and it wouldn't come back on.
The thermostat also didn't work great-- it seems that it was set on auto & I couldn't change it no matter how many buttons I pushed.
I would stay there again in a heartbeat, but I would call ahead to be sure the tv & thermostat were in working order.
