Guests said the lush surroundings of the attached gardens helped contribute to the serenity they experienced while staying here.

Negative Reviews

Very Mixed Reviews About the Food

Guests had dramatically different opinions about the food quality here. Some complained about the menu's lack of variety, just said the food wasn't appealing or that it lacked presentation, while others didn't have problems regarding the food. It seemed there was a larger percentage of bad reviews, however some feedback indicated management is trying to make culinary improvements.

Inconsiderate Cleaning Staff

Guests griped that the housekeepers seemed to forget that people were trying to sleep, because they talked loudly to each other while cleaning the rooms in the morning. Because the rooms are reportedly not well soundproofed, this was a major detriment to some.

The Accommodations Are Too Basic

From time to time, guests said they felt the accommodations were too simple. Because of that opinion, some said they would probably try to stay elsewhere during other trips to the area.
