Stayed here with friends on a short visit for attending a marriage. Nice Rooms and the hotel is very calm and quiet. Staff very friendly and with a good knowledge about the area and they were at service for all our needs. The beautiful garden at the backyard was our place to relax and have fun. Overall and awesome experience.

The place is just perfect for a quiet stay away from home. Very much "feel at home" feeling with well maintained rooms, vintage decor and amicable staff at a very decent price. Even the restaurant serves delicious cusines.
