Went there only for the breakfast. As compared to the description on the website, choice was limited and dishes were plain. However, the location is nice with a beautiful view. The place was also clean and well kept.

Excellent food,beautiful room and a very helpful personnel. Everyone is kind and has at heart the welfare of the residents. Small hotel with few guests. So it is the right place if you want to relax. Great for the family though some late evening entertainment would be a plus.

Do you have a dress code for dinner?
We went to the restaurant in shorts and t.shirts and everyone seemed very relaxed about the dress code -if there was one in place. Food excellent, staff brilliant and the setting is superb.

I had no problems with smokers at breakfast. Maybe we got lucky. We always ate out in the evenings though.
