3/5 Okay

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
The location is superb, and the building is nice. But the service is very poorly managed. The restaurant closes at 8.00 pm on weekdays (and does not open for breakfast), and the INN provides little information about alternatives. When it is open, the service is very, very slow (but the menu is fine and the waiters pleasant).
