This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of a very pretty little town. We had great service from the staff, although I think the breakfast has been over-rated by previous reviewers. It was OK but not quite as mouth-watering as I had expected. The Sheriff's Lady insists, though, that I say how good the coffee was - easily the best she had drunk in a week of this road trip. However, the hotel really lost marks on the sleep aspects. We Europeans are used to small rooms so that isn't the issue so much as the small double beds - I think Americans would call them fullsize and only ever use them for single occupancy. May be fine for the young and frisky but the Lady and I kept getting tangled up with each other in the night at a real cost to our sleep!
