We stayed here for two nights in February. What a hidden gem. The hotel is small, elegant, delicious food and charming staff. It had a colonial feel, but with a 2010 feel. We cancelled our afternoon's tour so we could relax and soak up the atmosphere. Air conditioning would have made it 100% perfect, although the fan was efficient.
