I loved the small details. I stayed in a different wing before and wasn’t to pleased. This time my room was much more updated. I enjoy the restaurant great service and it’s close to the training area I need to be too.

***Great people. Most important***. Stayed in 2 story side. Room was just old, dusty and worn out. Hard to find a place to plug in phone charger. Furniture in bad shape. Only 2 splat-back chairs and they were uncomfortable.

Thank you for your comments, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your room we also have a more modern section at the hotel. Historic rooms are smaller by today's standards but normal for the time they were built. We hope you'll consider returning one day.

We like the history of this hotel. The tower rooms are nice and spacious. However, the bed mattress could be a little less firm. An upgrade to pillow top would definitely increase the comfort level. We like the location of the hotel. Close to shopping and restaurants. Have been disappointed that the wine bar has been either closed for private party or not open during our stay. Grounds are beautifully maintained.
