Food is horrible intehy dining room! Really horrible. Rooms just OK. Antiques beds without support making you sleep nearly onthe floor. The historic items haning on walls lovely. The main room by the fire with a cup of coffee charming. HAs history as does all of the area..but walk through and enjoy it..then leave..Stay elsewhere please!
