We enjoyed about a week at the Old Courtyard - in a very pleasant room on the second floor with shared verandha over the courtyard - although sitting out got very hot and would benefit from a fan. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, we too were surprised to be asked to pay upfront on arrival - and can’t see the point of this. Having travelled far this is the last thing guests want to be asked - and we’ve never come across it before. We had a couple of pleasant meals in the restaurant situated in a great courtyard setting, which looked lovely when the table candles were lit. We were surprised this restaurant wasn’t more promoted to attract passing trade - we felt some pretty lights hanging in the trees and the alcoves would have attracted people in.
