We booked as 3 couples for a couple of birthdays and made an event of it by getting dressed up - black tie. Had lots of glasses for all of the different drinks/requirements. Comfortable, big rooms with great mattresses. Good shower upstairs - lots of hot water - the bath for 2 is amazing and worth trying. Loved that there was a dining room that we Read morecould sit in away from the kitchen. Not much room to move in the kitchen. Good utility room. We had a great time there making memories. Hide
