    Really a nice location with a wonderful breakfest. It is close to the center and there are a few good restaurants within walking distance. And it's very quiet in the night. For one or two days it is a nice overnight option. We liked it.

    Expected much less for the price ,but the rooms where spot on the staff was excellent and the breakfast perfect. The location is in the middle of town but in a quite area where you can go to bed at 7 if you'd like.

    We only ate breakfast here but the staff were exceptional and the lovely hot cooked breakfast was wonderful. Given the next opportunity I would definitely stay here as the location was great and the grounds beautiful.
