Great Hotel with Historic Feel "This is a beautiful hotel that has kept its historic touches reminiscent of early nineteenth-century architecture. It has a casual, relaxed feeling, and guests are welcome to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the spacious gardens. The lobby, rooms, and dining room are beautifully decorated..."
