We had a great one night stay here last month. The room was lovely with a very luxurious bath and comfortable bed. Grounds were beautiful and the restaurant view and food awesome for dinner. The only complaint was that the breakfast(room service) needs major improvement. We had it included in our package and would not choose to do that again. Service was friendly, if a bit unpolished. The hotel was virtually empty during the week when we were there, might have been nice to have received an upgrade but all rooms seem to have been refurbished nicely. Would definitely return.
