This is a great hotel

“We’ve tried their basic rooms (comfy and spacious) as well as the one with fireplace and spa bath and they’re both worth the money. The place has a lot of character and we particularly liked the Yulefest (Christmas in July) celebration. Breakfast is a great spread and everything is delicious.”
