Very good

Liked: Location is great.
Disliked: I stayed here several times in the 2010s and enjoyed a full breakfast included with my stay. Now you just get bagels and fruit, a little disappointing.

Booked this hotel by mistake...

Liked: Location, lovely garden
Disliked: Breakfast was very disappointing. Noise from other guests. Not the hotel’s fault but doors slamming doesn’t help.

Disappointing as the grounds are...

Liked: The room was ready and very clean
Disliked: Have handicapped spouse and room (#10) was very awkward. Parking was terrible. Was told there was plenty of parking and it turns out, there was not even 1 space per room. Spoke to the staff on-site who answered phone question and she said it was an old place and there was plenty of street parking which was a lie as there is construction and street closure.

we might try again staying...

Liked: it was a beautiful setting in a great location. There was construction going on around the front so it was a bit noisy during the day and water was turned off one day for a few hours. When we entered the room it had a musty smell! We opened all the windows and lite a candle which seemed to help.
