My husband just left the hotel this morning. The grounds are beautiful! The palace is a beautiful building. We had the opportunity to stay in a suite in the main house. I was expecting more given the location. The room was clean and had plenty of space. There was a bowl of fruit on the table waiting for us when we arrived. I think that they miss the opportunity to make the experience really shine. The furnishings were bland. The overhead lights in the room and hallway were too modern for the atmosphere. It would have made more of a statement with some period wall sconces in the halls and something more accurate to the time period than the white ball from a stick hanging from the ceiling in the room. While we enjoyed the hotel, I think with more attention to detail in the decorating that this could be a really special place to stay.
