I just recently stayed here with my husband an adult daughter. We all loved the place. We were a bit apprehensive because of some of the reviews that suggested the furniture was "worn". We had to chose between this place and another and ultimately chose here because of the water views (which I wanted ) but were concerned the price to pay for our choice would be worn furniture. Well, to our pleasant surprise that was not the case. We tried hard to find the "worn" furniture noted in the reviews and found none. We suspect that those who did not like the Old European style were referring to the look as "worn". We actually enjoyed the style.
When we arrived we were taken to the parlor for tea (or cold drinks if preferred). There was a large fire place with a nice warm fire (it was still early spring and the outside temperature was failing into the upper 30's and lower 40's range at night when we arrived). After the staff had taken all the luggage to the room and we had enjoyed our nice relaxing tea by the fire place, we were taken to our room.
The room was really a suite, large and very, very clean. The bathroom was huge and spotless clean. Even though I always re-clean the bathrooms- I must say nothing at all came up on my disinfectant cloths; that's how spotless their own cleaning was (unusual even in the 5 star hotels).
Dinner was fantastic- also by a fire.
The breakfast was very nice with good selections from both the cold and hot menus.
We highly recommend this place and hope that we can come again.
