I remember reading all the reviews before I booked our stay at Roughley Manor and thought how could this place not have one bad review. I now understand. Roughley Manor is a very special place. My mother and I came out to visit family and found this to be truly the best place we have ever stayed. There are so many reasons Roughley Manor rates at the top of our list:
Accomodations - we stayed in the Cholla Suite. A completely well-appointed suite with everything you could ever need. There were two large queen sized beds with luxury linens. A kitchen with microwave, fridge, sink, and plenty of counter space to spread out all of our stuff. The bathroom even had hardwood floors and fluffy towels - just wonderful! The suite was huge and very clean - we are neat freaks and we felt just as comfortable as being in our own homes.
Food - the breakfasts were amazing. We stayed three nights and each breakfast was always so delicious. Breakfast was served outside before the heat became an issue - we were there in the summer. The patio was splendid with a wonderful fountain in the middle surrounded by large palms that provided ample shade. Fresh coffee and juice were waiting and the LA Times for each guest. Favorite breakfast for me was a breakfast panini and my mom loved the french toast.
Jan & Gary - they are the owners and cooks and what lovely people they are. They were very kind to us and made sure our stay was comfortable. They are a great team making sure everything runs smoothly. You can tell they love what they do.
Landscape - Roughley Manor is smack dab in the middle of the desert but you would never know it. Jan and Gary have gone to great detail to make sure there spots all over the property for shade and relaxing including a lovely gazebo area. The flora and fauna definitely add to the charm of this place. A nice pool area provides a respite from the desert heat as well. There are some incredible desert views.
I tried to think of one negative about this place but there just wasn't one. You will not be disappointed if you stay here - this place is amazing!
