The hotel is well maintained and there is plenty of parking. We stayed the weekend of Jan. 27, 2012 and had a great time. I found that the cheapest price for this hotel was actually on the hotel website! We reserved a tower room with a fireplace. Our fireplace used wax logs and every night we used one the maids would place a new one each morning at no extra change.
Positives: Large spacious room, very clean, reasonably priced mini bar with fridge, perfect location (you can walk the entire town without even trying), the hotel has a nice outdoor seating area with an outdoor fireplace, the bar has happy hour from 4-6pm with $3 glasses of wine...oh and the room has windows that actually open which was very nice! The hotel is next door to Sevtap Winery's tasting room which is open late and usually has a band on Friday and Saturday nights
Negatives: The bed was not comfortable; it was lumpy and if one person moved slightly the whole bed would shake, it also squeaked. Since the roof of the buildings go to a point (dutch style building) and our room was in one of the points our bed didn't have a headboard which was really awkward when relaxing on the bed or trying to watch TV. The hotel has three floors but the elevator only goes up to the second floor, which means you have to take a flight of stairs to the third floor. If you have trouble with stairs like I do, I would recommend mentioning that when you make the reservation so you can get a room on the 1st or 2nd floor.
Overall I would stay again and I recommend it :)
