Pros: beds were very comfy. rooms clean. staff friendly.
Cons: - when i asked about the type of mattresses they had and where they got them, i was promised an answer but got none. - the food was less value for the money than expected, e.g. too much pasta in seafood dishes and too little seafood in pasta & seafood dishes.

Pros: Quite a surprise, the hotel and grounds look like the Governor's mansion at Williamsburg. Top shelf amenities for chain hotel prices
Cons: Bed was too soft. Would have preferred a king size option
