Service is good, rooms very small, few with water view. VERY expensive. Have stayed at fine hotels all over the world. While quaint, this one is underwhelming. Very remotely located, very expensive. But Toppers is great food and service.

No, dogs are not allowed at this property. Their sister property, "The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin" does permit pets. Great place for them too - very welcoming with special treats for your extended family.
