    We stayed in the Victory Chimes room - simple & exquisite. Comfortable. Spacious. Peaceful. Our room had the feel of a luxury spa. The bathroom was very spacious. The bed comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.

    Excellent place to stay. Super charming with amazing food and service. Special attention given to meal presentation and attractive dish ware. We loved the third floor spacious room, quiet and removed from the bustling restaurant below. Highly recommend this inn.
