Great place. The staff was attentive. The owner is very nice and cares for the lovely garden. Really great places to sit outside on the veranda and work or chat. Close to Capital Craft Beer Academy, also a plus. Will stay there again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful style of our room. The bathroom was clean and spacious, and the room had huge windows. Would have liked to go swimming in the clean blue pool if we would have had more time. The Staff was great and breakfast was perfect

As I said, the rooms are ok but our bathroom could do with...

Peaceful, beautiful gardens, good facilities. Very secure and centrally situated. Could do with the installation of permanent air conditioners, and a permanent shower. Complaints dealt with swiftly and efficiently.

“Be aware of the constant drone of the pool equipment just below the window of room # 10 (even # 9) in the back of the pool area - it's running day & night.”
