This is a good place to stay but I was hesitant to give it a 4 rating. We had a ground floor room which was quite nice. However you have to keep the curtains closed all the time. If you walk out of the toilet area people are literally looking right into your room. It's kind of an odd design. No robes in the room which I think for this type of hotel the expectation is that there should be. Coffee is absolutely horrible... The grounds are lovely. I would stay here again if I was in the area, but it certainly wasn't one of the best places that we stayed in on our trip. I would recommend this hotel.
