“Beautiful hotel, Outrageously overpriced, not as clean as it should have been”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

The bathroom was not clean, the shower glass was full of soap scum and the floor not washed. The rooms are beautiful and the restaurant ok.
The hotel so is expensive, I wished I had gone with the B&B I saw online. They charged for everything and alot of extra fees on the bill including a training fee??!!
I would not stay here if you are concerned about money... we did feel safe here though.
