Lighting inside the room was poor, making it impossible to read anywhere, in the bed, by the desk whatever. Simply needs one good, bright light somewhere. Otherwise a lovely old room.

Noisy room on main road. Musty . Would have liked an English speaking caretaker. Nice as she was, could not answer any questions we had. Not good.

Beautiful heritage house. The bed was uncomfortable, but the furnishings lovely. Unfortunately the gardens need serious attention to keep up with the status of the house.
