Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Exceeded my Expectations."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I expected this to be a luxury hotel with very good service, but my expectation for this visit were exceeded by this hotel and staff. The staff was always engaging and trying to find ways to make the stay even better, always very polite and respectful. The property was very well maintained and did provide the luxury that I was expecting and then some, with a large bathroom, in room safe and a very comfortable bed. I would recommend this property to anyone I know. Regards, Larry Wadler.
