We were very disappointed. Although the cleanliness was just passable, our non smoking room reeked of former smoking occupants. It is great to offer non smoking rooms but they have to be thoroughly cleaned before putting a sign on the door.

This was not a good experience for neither my husband or myself. Our room was small, smelly, the bathroom tiny, with a very bad smelling shower curtain. The rug was very grimy and the bed gave me such a sore back that I could barely walk the next day. A word to the owners...smarten up!! This is beautiful Victoria and... More
