I live in the area, and when I have guests in from out of town I put them up at this hotel. Most recently my cousin stayed here and loved it. The rooms are quite large with large bathrooms and a fridge in the room. My cousin told me the bed was very, very comfortable. The bathroom only has a shower (not an issue for me, but she prefers baths). She greatly enjoyed the breakfast each morning.
The service is impeccable. The hotel is located right in the heart of the village. The only downside is the parking - it is valet or nothing. So I would drop her off and then go back to my home, park and walk back - not a huge issue for me as I only live a couple of blocks away, but I do like to self-park my vehicle.
Reception always has cookies available - freshly baked!
Great hotel for location and service.
