Located in a newly gentrified portion of Culpeper, this hotel, (more like B&B without the breakfast), was an unexpected delight. Rooms were large and well decorated. Bathrooms are clean and spacious. We travelled with friends, so we were able to see their rooms too. We stayed in the Acqua suite. The bathroom had a large shower with steam. Our king bed was comfortable. Our suite included a small refrigerator, which was stocked everyday with bottled water, which was a nice touch. Close to Culpeper Amtrak station, but we never heard a train. Stores right down the street includes two wine shops, a cheese shop, upscale restaurants and delis.
I felt like we were living in a really short term apartment, rather than a hotel. There really is no front desk, but when asked, the management fixed a small problem we had after checking in. (The toilet continued to run after filling). It was fixed before we were back from dinner. The ONLY thing I would have liked to see is a good armchair for reading, rather than the lounge chair in the room.
I will definitely stay here if we return to Culpeper.
