Positive Reviews

The Staff is Great

Guests generally found the staff to be very attentive. In some cases, they said the employees seemed a little rushed off their feet, but even so, their their commitment to good service was usually consistent.

A Relaxed Setting

Guests consistently commented that they thought the setting was very calming, and that they loved the spectacular countryside views. Some guests had lovely views from their rooms, and no matter what, frequently commented that the atmosphere was perfect for getting away from it all for a while.

The Rooms Are Spacious and Comfy

Guests often remarked how their rooms were bigger than expected, and very well equipped. Many were staying here for special events, such as weddings, and felt that the room amenities matched the unique nature of those occasions.

Negative Reviews

The Facilities Look a Little Tired

Guests sometimes felt that the property's public facilities needed a little freshening up. Even though the appearance didn't prevent guests from using them, they still noticed the shortcoming and thought it'd be easy to remedy.

Slightly Overpriced

Even when guests did not have bad experiences here, some still felt they paid a little too much for the rooms. In a few cases, guests noted that they think they could have found cheaper but similar hotels elsewhere in the area.

The Soundproofing is Not Good Enough

Guests complained that the sound isolation between the rooms was not effective. Sometimes they were bothered by other occupants who seemingly were not going out of their way to be loud. Packing earplugs may be a good idea, especially since reviews indicated the problem was present all over the hotel and not just in certain sections.
