Can't beat the location. The Lavender Inn is beautifully decorated. You'll feel immediately at home. Greeted with wines and cheeses. Not a bad start. Every room in the communal parts is exquisitely relaxing.
We took a cooking class too at the Lavender Inn - what fun. Kathy and chef Dave made it so enjoyable and we were wonderfully looked after.
Sunday Farmers' Market is a stone's throw away, as is all gorgeous little stores, restaurants and bars. (Recommend the flights at Movino and indulge - why not - the chocolate souffle/fondant pudding is something else).
Room 4: The Lavender Room. We got upgraded to it from a room that shared a bathroom with others to an en suite. (Thank you!) A little balcony looked over the beautiful garden (sleep with eye masks on so you can keep your balcony door open to fall asleep to the water fountains...) The room was beautifully done up, clean and you will relax right in to it.
The hammock, the lavender painted chairs, the little seating areas... the breakfast (which I see everyone before me has commented on)... I would love to bring my sisters, mother, friends all there. Wish we had more time to try out their Garden Spa too... maybe next time.
One hell of a gem. Don't look any further.
