Positive Reviews


Find your inner peace.

The grounds of the property are filled with greenery to create a soothing ambiance. Even though the property has an on-site golf course, even non-golfers appreciate the serenity and natural beauty on display.

Negative Reviews


Rowdy events keep non-participants awake.

While the hotel has developed a good reputation for hosting events, these shindigs can be loud and disturbing to the other guests at the property. Guests note the noise can be bothersome at night when they are trying to sleep.


The long, cold walk.

The accommodations are housed in a separate building from the reception desk and restaurant. Visitors note they have to go outside when trying to get from one building to the other which can be unpleasant in the winter.


Food for thought.

Visitors point out the food at the hotel is not particularly good and options are limited. The hotel does serve breakfast, but it is not included. Overall, guests say the hotel’s dining experience leaves a lot to be desired.
