You are in for a rare treat here excellent personal service, we arrived early at 11am & would have been ok hold off until 3pm but not only did she have a room ready but as it was our first time there we were given one of few rooms overlooking the Corn Cobs & rivers with the window seats you read in other reviews (that is the way to get a newbie back time after time). Its going to be a great 5 days.
Be warned that these room with a view are in full ears distance from the L, so if you are a sensitive sleeper this may not be for you, the L starts squeaking on those tracks early.
It is a well decorated Parisian boudoir inspiration, bed was comfy, & as I prefer in any hotel the comforter was covered in a double sheet. My only complaint are the pillows they are just not comfortable at all both the BF & I were up several times re-fluffing them if your better half snores brace yourself.
Also be warned this is a VERY pet friendly hotel so you if you are opposed to that or allergic this might not be the hotel for you.
There is a nightly wine reception, it was a great way to cool off & get inspired before venturing out for dinner.
I will review the restaurant on it own, but make sure to go there try what I call the "Ethereal Eggs" or their take on devil eggs & I would suggest ordering the SWK burger & taking it upstairs putting on your robe provided & going at it. It is absolutely in the top 3 burgers Ive had in my life, but you will moan, groan & your eyes will roll into the back of your head (if you cook it no more than medium rare) so I suggest making this a private moment. If you are traveling alone this is the perfect place to go .... look for my extended review.
We will be back here, this is certainly a gem among all the hotels in the area
