THE best hotel I've ever stayed in. Friendly, service minded, different, unique. The old water tower is an experience worth while getting. The style and ambiance of this place is just perfect. No luxury standard box hotel, but a place way out of the ordinary. Get a room in the tower or a garden room for a little extra, overlooking the herb/vegetable garden for the restaurant, but frankly any room goes. The restaurant is also an experience, not the most extensive a la carte menu, but food is just great. You have to try their cheesecake with a glass of muscat on the side.
