Our room was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed including a luxurious bathroom.

We stayed for one night as part of a tour. Had a spacious room with a balcony. Comfy bed and clean, well appointed bathroom. Cozy bar area, large dining room. Fantastic dinner and breakfast. Take time to walk through the gardens with your camera!
