My wife and I stayed in this super boutique hotel for 3 days during our honeymoon.

A gem of a place. My husband and I enjoyed 3 amazing days here and were very sad to leave. Declan was so welcoming and gregarious, he made our stay a real delight. Thank you to all the staff who were always very considerate and sweet.

We have stayed at some pretty amazing places in the world but this place was just fantastic. Given that it is in a suburban street in a small town with an unimposing facade you walk in and are simply blown away. The design is exceptional, the rooms are just wonderful and the service level is extra ordinary. Book early. We...
