Excellent staff serving quality food at a reasonable price. Staff very attentive to detail. Even though the place was busy, service was great. I would recommend highly due to the above factors. We arrived with a six year old and a one month old and this was not in the least bit problematic. We will return for sure.

Rooms are spacious with extremely comfortable beds and hotel has an excellent housekeeping...

Just had the best girls weekend away with my 9 friends. We laughed, we drank, we slept, we ate. We had the best time ever. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. Food was excellent and the hotel could not do enough for us.
