Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff...the breakfast buffet is delicious and the free wine happy hour and cookies/milk each evening were a nice bonus. Very close to shopping, the beach, etc...will definitely be back!

Beautiful place
Small bathroom, but that is to be expected with a 100+ year old hotel. Very quiet with a great location. Bar and breakfast were excellent.

Charming hotel with excellent breakfast & service
This hotel has a lot of charm! I would definitely stay there again... my only wish was that the room/bathroom wasn’t so small. Our room had only 1 queen bed and the bathroom felt tiny. Other than it was perfect!

Pleasant stay
We stayed for our 38 wedding anniversary. I asked for early check in and the Manager Jorge took care of it as well as late check out. On our arrival we were welcomed and helped with all the booking that we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Jorge and his team really made our stay very pleasant. Amazing champagne breakfast and afternoon wine was just right.

The garden and the estate themselves are beautiful. But the room was a bit loud and outdated. We could hear the minifridge buzzing away, the lights in the bathroom humming, and people through the walls a bit too noticeably. It is a charming and unique property, though.
