Beautiful Boutique Hotel

Beautiful hotel and very professional staff. The spa and gym were closed during our stay, which is the only thing I would change in the future.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff at this property are second to none. Extremely friendly and helpful. My only disappointment was that the hotel itself beyond the lobby was a little tired and in need of updating. Cleanliness wasn’t the best, hairdryer covered in dust and sticky residue. Toilet seat broken and marks on bathroom wall. Not a luxury stay, but a pleasant one.
