    The rooms were beautifully appointed, staff was attentive, beds were very comfortable chocolate cookies were delicious and we were thrilled to be in A2's first luxury hotel. We will definitely go back. Wish you would have been there 30 years ago!

    Very Nice hotel and was clean, which is important to me. It has character to it because it is not a chain. The only thing missing for us for the price we paid was a contenental breakfast. We had to buy a crescent egg sandwich.
