The building itself was really nice and full of history, but the restaurant was a big disappointment. Only thing which deserve a mention was a salsa sauce and the Merlot. Food, which I had a Mexican and my husband a steak, were awful. I can’t...More

Interesting place but facilities in main building are quite dated. No coffee in the room. Very small bathroom. Personally I would stop in for a meal and check out the place but stay with more modern facilities.
