This hotel is quirky, bordering on eccentric, which might not be to everyone's taste, but we loved it. The heritage building is some 100 yrs old and packed with character, at any rate ground floor suites, one of which we had. The room (a bed space and sitting area) was huge, some 20 feet high, interestingly furnished, four poster bed, AC but also fans AND a blow heater against the February chill. Bathroom equally high and mighty, with a big, old style freestanding bath (which briefly flooded but never mind). Our room opened out in front to a veranda and lawn and at the at back to a pretty pool with a cupola. Some reviewers have objected to the puppeteers on the lawn til about 10pm; we rather liked them. We stayed only one night but found the food and service both excellent.
