This is a charming colonial style mansion with a modern annexe surrounding a pool. The hotel has fierce air conditioning and an excellent restaurant and an equally good bar.
My standout memory is the excellent and friendly care that all of the staff gave throughout the 3 day stay. They organised restaurants, advised on music venues, drove us everywhere in the hotel cars, gave me a bourbon tutorial and lent us a room for a business meeting. At least 10 separate staff did something above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.
There is no reason not to stay here, except perhaps that it’s a 30 minute walk to the downtown music scene, which might not suit everyone.
• Large room and bathroom
• Big shower and proper full length tub
• Tables and lounger on balcony
• Contemporary design in sympathy with a traditional building
• Very comfortable bed
• a few room details, no full length mirror and a table wood have been good
• Unattractive main road
• I could just hear the restaurant music below in my room
• Perhaps a bit remote for some being up by the University campus
