Although the couple working there is really sweet and nice people, I just couldn't give them above a 2/5.
You feel almost as if you are in their own house. There are a million signs everywhere saying "don't touch this", "don't do that", "do this", etc.
The rooms haven't been redecorated or redone since 1818, so if you're an old old grandma I guess you'd love them.
There is one socket in the room that doesn't even work with most outlet adapters and is on the other side of the room from the bed.
No A/C so you have to leave the windows open and get attacked by mosquitos all night. We had some GNARLY bug bites.
The WiFi doesn't work very well and in fact another guest sat outside our room at night to get access to WiFi because it didn't work in their room.
On the flip side the location is amazing.
