Great location, very clean and quiet. Great views.
Food is ok, but not great if you consider the price.
My daughters wedding was there. Was amazing!! Had breakfast in the dinning room and food was excellent!! Room small but bed very comfortable. Bathroom large and beautiful. Toilet are very small hard to close open door for privacy. But loved the grounds and staff
My husband and I had a pre-baby retreat at this amazing Belmond property. We’ve stayed at several Belmond locations in the past, and this was our favorite due to the beautiful location, amazing facilities and top-notch staff.
Nothing! It was perfect!
Best sleep ever at a hotel! Bedding, pillows, mattress are superb. Bathrooms are amazing - a little small but thatâ€™s ok.
Staff was helpful and courteous.
Upon arrival, the room given to us was overlooking a huge construction dumpster. We requested a different room, and were reassigned.
