Definitely charming. But NOT very comfortable.
Lots of hard edges. Interesting rough-cut architecture.
Uneven slate floors to scrape your toes. Spacious suites with torn upholstery and heavy rustic chairs that will leave you with splinters where you don't want them.
Interesting stone bathrooms with crusty bathroom fixtures and ragged Ikea bathmats. One bathrobe smelled like a real veteran. The other was fine.
Good wifi, no phones or tv (I consider this a plus!)
Might get turn down service, might not.
Delightful bonfires lighting the pool area at night. But they will only light the candles in your suite if asked twice. Kitchens clean, but equipment is meager. Not even a bowl!
Arguably one of the worst beds I have encountered in years-both hard AND lumpy. (I wondered, at about 2 am, just what that mattress was really stuffed with!)
Be aware that some of the suites are NOT very private. They offer a thin visual privacy, but the party goes on inches away, and you're in it-like it or not! Its like setting up a tent in the middle of the bus station. Sort of private, but not really. Some suites are much more private. Select with care.
Parking limited and on the street. Lock your car. A good breakfast, but grudging service.
They have some nice amenities, but will not offer them. They are discovered only on close questioning.
We had several rooms, and I have to say that the difficulties were pretty much the same for everyone. The shortcomings bothered some more than others. Some beds were better than mine. Personally, I wouldn't go back, but it could have been worse. You can do better for the money.
