    We have booked s stay with you at the end of July. This is the finale of our California holiday which prior to this will have been very busy. We booked here for a quiet refuge at the end of our break before heading back to the UK. I've heard different things about road noise. Does it impact? Can you hear the road from rooms / terrace? Many thanks.
