Thanks Kerrin for the excellent review. Its great that customers are able to leave their tcomments available to our future guests, especially the part about ' It’s convenient to get to town and all local sights and is located in a very scenic part of the city.' as sometimes, other brochures (not ours) can sometimes be a little artistic in their reviews. Thanks also about your honest opinion on 'Top class finishes and small thoughtful touches really sets this place apart.' These comments set us apart from the rest of the crowd. sincerely yours - Ken & Lucie
