Its always nice to go somewhere where your expectations are beat. This is a hotel that does that in terms of design and attention to detail. I stayed in the Regency Room and it was by far one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. The size of the room was good, very airy and light. The extra details, which the owner had put in shows truly that they understand the need of their guests and everything had been thought of. Their website is good, but does not show off the rooms to their best advantage. I went to have a look at all the other rooms and all had a unique design and the attention to detail which was a pleasure to see. What a gem, congratulations to the owner for their work and keeping a high standard throughout the hotel and restaurant. If you like the best this world has to offer, then you must stay here.
