My husband and I stayed at the lovely, old converted convent for two nights. The staff was helpful in organizing a boutique wine tour and quickly delivered canapés and wine before dinner in the lounge area. The hotel is small and charming but not a upscale experience.
We had difficulty getting any Internet service unless we were in the lounge. Our room was number 3. It was located across from the breakfast room and beneath some very squeaky floorboards located above our room. We heard people's voices and movement in the lounge area and also above our room. The television station list of choices was extremely poor.
Though the drive to the property was lovely and the surrounding area interesting, Peppers Convent needs some TLC (Tender Loving Care) to make this traveler return.
