Our hosts were wonderful! Breakfast was excellent. The room was clean, bathroom was small. Walking distance for dinner location (Robin's Nest) was reasonable.

Continental Breakfast was fabulous, but the hotel was a below average place. The room was cramped up and the WIFI was not good at all. The hostess Linda was very courteous and good, but the amenities were sub-par. The carpets were not very clean. Parking is very limited.

Needs some love !
The staff were lovely but it needs some love and although beds were clean the general cleanliness was poor. The lack of English speaking staff was also a loss as we got lost and could not get directions on phone.
