My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our anniversary and it was excellent! The mansion was gorgeous and well-decorated, with extensive gardens outside and a couple of patios (one in the sun and one in the shade); there was even some exercise equipment available in the common areas. The room was very spacious and lovely with excellent natural light, a very comfortable bed and sitting areas, and plenty of closet and drawer space; the only downside was that the shower water pressure was quite low. The breakfast both mornings was wonderfully prepared and very tasty, with several courses and beverage options. We would definitely recommend this B&B!
