I booked 2 nights with this hotel from the website, 2 days before my arrival I ended up in the hospital and couldn't make the reservation. I called them from the hospital and the female manager was extremely rude and said too bad, you need to cancel 3 days prior to get a refund. I was shocked and upset and... More

Our room was very comfortable and clean , no frills, but everything we needed for a pleasant overnight. The food in the dining was an unexpected gourmet treat! Delicious and unforgettable prepared by the French chef/owner.

This is a small, quaint property but very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and equipped with very comfortable beds, a small refrigerator, WiFi and a T.V with lots of channels.

Overall had a good stay here. The hotel itself is nice, rooms are solid. WiFi was excellent, and the restaurant was excellent (although pricey, if not ordering off the bar menu) with nice live music that was easy on the ear and at the perfect volume. Included breakfast in the morning was standard fare - cereal, toast, juice, coffee, yoghurt,... More
