Amazing rooms and decor, great service, great food
We spent 2 nights at the Macalister Mansion and loved it. The decor throughout the common areas is spectacular. They have a whiskey and cigar lounge with a great selection if that's your thing, but food in the restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced. We didn't get the chance to check out their fine dining option, but I'm guessing it was good too. The bar is a great place to have a drink, and the wine selection is good. Service was excellent, pool was nice, room was delightful, and mini bar was complimentary, what more can you ask for?
