Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Nice food excellent service (for dinner) but not many other patrons - probably because it was a cold night. Would go again in a heartbeat.

Review:   I love the attention to detail at this hotel: a glass of wine ready for you to drink when you arrive and a bedtime snack and slippers waiting for you in your room after dinner. The staff are incredibly friendly, and the food is delicious. I absolutely loved my stay!
