You will find this hotel to be very quaint and charming from the moment you walk in. The courtyard which is central to all rooms is lovely, a quiet place to sit and visit. The hotel staff are very service oriented and are eager to be of help. Breakfast is included and offers a gourmet blend of fresh fruits, eggs, and pastry breads. Plenty to give you a good start to your day.
The rooms are small by American standards. I felt like a mouse scooting up the stairway to a small but cozy place to spend the night. You won't be wanting to spend much time in your room here. The bed and pillows are very comfortable, bathroom floor is heated so nice for those chilly mornings, and the shower will make any man over 6 feet very happy. We chose the adventure package and did the cruise on the Bay which was terrific.
We enjoyed our stay overall but the pricing may be a little more than warranted based on the space limitations of the rooms. Would have been nice to have a room with a view of some kind.
Carmel is wonderful, reeks with charm, we will return every year.
