Styling and art pieces were good. Cleaning was standard particularly given the COVID requirements.

A charming boutique hotel. The room was on the street corner but quiet comfortable and well appointed. It was an easy walking distance to Stillwater which is a superb restaurant. The manager was lovely, and I felt it was excellent value.
