"The main building still has a mix of Victorian and Colonial character. Rooms are spacious and decorated with excellent taste. From my glass door I could see across the valley. Dinner and breakfast are nice and elegant. Staff is very kind and attentive. I highly recommend it for relaxing and recharging batteries."

"This hotel stay was perfect in every way. We chose to stay in the garden suite which was very tastefully furnished with a magnificent views of the hills. We were shown the bedrooms in the main house which were very comfortable and beautifully furnished also. The gardens are manicured with roses, hydrangeas, dahlias etc. The whole ambience is one of peace and calm."
