This property is lovely and has farms with horses right next door....but on the other side is a huge highway, which you can hear constantly. It is screened with trees and shrubbery, but the sound is constant, even though out of view.
That said, the hotel is a fun mix of old and new. We had a business event held there, as well as staying there two nights. The breakfast is fabulous, and dinners were awesome, too. The pricing is pretty expensive, but each and every menu item was perfectly prepared, whether lamb or fish. The staff assisting us with logistics for the business portion were very helpful and service for the refreshments was attentive without being fussy.
The room was spotless and provided kettle, teas, hair dryer and toiletries. However, it would have been nice to have an iron and ironing board, especially for business travelers holding an event at the property. Fortunately travel wrinkles hung out pretty well in a steamy bathroom, but perhaps we should have asked.....they may have had an iron available but we didn't ask at the desk.
The bed, however, was my big complaint. It was only slightly better than a futon, with many saggy and lumpy parts. The duvet and comforter was very nice, as it was cold during our visit and the room heating was strange and took some adjusting to get a happy middle temperature without running the fan constantly.
