After reading the two previous reviews, I cannot believe they could have stayed at the same hotel.
The hotel was beautifully restored and a wonderful experience.
The 4 course meal cost me US$50 and was superb. I got a wonderful local drop of wine for US$30. These prices were far from overpriced.
It is strange that the previous review described it as noisy and on a main highway. You can hardly hear anything through the 3 feet thick convict built walls and that "highway" they must be refering to is a single lane road that crosses a bridge nearby (highway indeed).
The review was right about one thing. It is not suitable for children, not with the superb collection of period artwork and luscious furnishings.
I have returned to the states after a wonderful holiday, with the highlight (so far as accommodation is concerned) being my stay at Woodbridge.
