Fabulous 8.8 From 160 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to relax
We had a wonderful stay> Breakfast each morning was delicious, the gardens were beautiful and Dominique was a perfect host. We even returned early one evening just to relax in the peaceful gardens.
LAURA, us2 night romance trip
Poor 2.0
Lousy, no parking
I was unable to stay as there was no available parking nearby and with a broken toe I could not shlep my stuff. I called after determining that this was in a residence and not an actual hotel and got a surly message on the answering machine telling me to leave a message - which obviously would not help at that time. I think I should get my free night back as it was definitely not a good place to stay
