Stayed just one night, and wished it had been longer. We stayed in the Queen Elizabeth Suite, which had a large comfortable bed for my husband and I, and a separate single bed for our teenage daughter. We all had heated mattress pads, as it was winter. It was a quiet, peaceful and beautiful location. Since we were there in winter, we could not enjoy the rose gardens, but it is obvious that it would be spectacular in summer. Our daughter fell in love with their dog "George". Kevin, the owner, was very helpful, and suggested a nice place for dinner within walking distance, that was very good. Breakfast was very nice and served by Kevin. The room had a small fridge with a variety of juices and bottled water, as well as a coffee and tea maker. A nice added touch was a jar of shortbreads that were delicious. They have a solar heated soaking pool "The Wallow" that looked inviting, but again we were there in winter so we did not try it. All in all, a lovely stay.
