We booked here based on friends's recommendation, though dated. On our arrival we found the place to be in a bit of a shamble. We were the only ones staying here and the place was being sold to new owners on the day we were to depart. The fact that spring had yet to appear here was cause for some of the shambled look. However, the outside needed some cleaning and the decorative outdoor lighting needed to be turned on. (We might have been the solo guests but we did pay a high price for the place.) Almost all of the outdoor decorations had been removed.
Rose was delightful and the room had all the amenities we could expect. It was quite, clean and well supplied. Having fresh ground coffee in the room was special for us.
Why the original owner did not fix the shower selection button is beyond me, but we made do.
The breakfast was perfectly balanced and not excessive - this was appreciated.
With new owners taking over on May 1, all prior assessments, including this one, are null and void. I hope the new owners can make good use of this great location and facility. Please repair the hot tub. We would have used it, if it had been working. It appeared that it has been out of order for a long time.
