Beautiful gardens and outside deck. The room was large and spacious. Bathroom was great and shower nice. We could not stop talking about the comfortable bed - unreal. I did not want to get up each morning. The only secondary icee of puzzle was breakfast. This may be due to Covid but we were last shift in dining room each morning and food was never hot. Again as the situation improves, we hope then I would work on this. All else top notch. Comfortable historical beach inn.

Our room was very cozy. The location was in a great spot. However, the breakfast service was overwhelming. They only had one person that was handling breakfast service and the front desk. I really hope they can get more help, this can be very stressful for one person to handle. Overall we enjoyed our stay.
