A home away from home, Carol is absolutley fantastic and the same can be said about her staff. We had an excellent stay, I was a bit sick though but Carol called a doctor and booked an appointment for me and took me to the doctor personally, now that is what I call service! The breakfast was awesome and the rooms too very quiet and tranquil. We'll definitley go back there :)
