Mel, the innkeeper, was so awesome from the moment I booked this hotel that I really wanted to like this place. However, it fell short of expectations. First of all, I do not recommend coming in at night as your actual room is a bit difficult to find. I did appreciate the homey touches in the room (bathroom cups, silverware, etc.) the room itself was in need of refurbishment. The room also smelled a bit musky, likely because they allow pets. The views, however, were amazing.
The cottages are very quaint, but I felt that they were overpriced for the somewhat lack of upkeep and service level.
