My room overlooked the wonderful lush garden. lt was a little sanctuary. Every night there were flowers placed on my bed...the room smelt quite delicious and luxurious. The food was excellent---the breakfasts delicious and the one dinner I had there was exceptional. Nothing not to like! A bit of AC noise but controllable.

I definitely recommend this place. Charming place with charming... More

I loved this place. The rooms are lovely and the staff extremely helpful and attentive. Best of all is the fact that you feel you're living in a beautiful bygone era. Check out the old style phones (that work) and the enormous swings on the balconies. I absolutely loved it!
