Unfortunately, I must disagree with most of the rewiews: we spent a night at this Inn and didn't like it so much. Mostly, it's a question of personal taste: too many flowers and too many ornaments, strangely mixed with "modern" staff (as a huge radio/alarm clock that took all the space on the bedside table). As for the "original art", meaning the paintings on the walls, I prefer not to comment.
In brief, we found it stifling more than elegant, pretentious more than enchanting: a big disappointment after all we'd read here and on the website.
But as I said, taste is personal: what's less personal is that the room was small and noisy (the Inn is on Route 1, so there's a lot of traffic, and we where on the front), and being not far from the kitchen, a bit smelly too. The staff was simply non existant.
The general impression is that the Inn is very "cooking-oriented", and it's worthwhile staying there mainly if you're interested in the cuisine and the cooking courses. We didn't dine there, so I can't say anything about it, but the breakfast was good.
