We were recommended this place for our honeymoon by an owner of an amazing winery in the Yarra Valley in Australia. She'd been a few years earlier and told us that when she booked it, she looked at the price and thought "This is either the greatest deal ever, or we've just made the mistake of our lives". She ended up going there and absolutely fell in love, as did we upon taking her advice and visiting there recently. We only stayed for 1 night but it was just totally charming and so so French. Anyone who complains about it being past its use-by-date or not being clean must be the fussiest travellers ever. For us, imperfection and small quirks are what we love. It's so much more authentic than staying in somewhere shiny and new. We couldn't believe our luck, and would recommend it to anyone who loves vintage-feel hotels, antiques and the charm of yesteryear. Also right in town, great parking and an amazing pizza place a hop skip and jump away.
