          The room actually had a TV room with comfy couch and chairs. The decorations were immaculate, and there were many "chicken" pictures around to highlight the overall mood. We were "blown away." We will be returning in the next few months.

          Hi Heather and Tom, I'm trying to figure out how to change the ratings at the bottom of my review, which I must have overlooked when I wrote it. The should all be 5 stars, of course! I'll keep trying... at least the headline rating is right.
