“We stayed for 7 nights in early March. Everything about the hotel and staff was great. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The suite was well-designed and kept very clean at all times. The breakfast included waffles, eggs, bacon and sausage which were always fresh and warm. There was also a large selection of other breakfast items. This was definitely one of the best stays we have ever had including many facilities with much higher prices. We highly recommend this hotel.”
