It's very difficult to find a place where we can stay with our two adult children and all be comfortable. I was so excited to see that they had a room with 2 queen beds. It is the Contessa room, and yes, it is close to the street, but we always travel with a white noise machine for sleeping, so traffic noise wasn't a problem at all. The beds were very comfortable, and the room is spacious enough that we weren't bumping into each other all the time. Plus, there are so many lovely outdoor sitting places to read or chat - not to mention the cozy breakfast area which has comfy couches and a nice fire going in the fireplace all day long. We were so impressed with the high quality food and wine served at the evening wine reception. Such a perfect way to wind down after a day of sightseeing. And the breakfasts are tasty and filling, with an egg dish and fresh fruit served every morning along with assorted breads and cereals.
If you are a stickler about things being new and in prime condition, this room may not be the place for you. But if you love comfort, hospitality, clean rooms, helpful staff and a beautiful garden setting, then I highly recommend this place! Oh, and because I had stayed at one of their other inns a few years back and put my name on their email list, I knew about a mid-week special they were offering and was able to book our room at a great discount!
