While some reviewers have less than stellar things to say, there are others who return again and again to this boutique property. After staying there, I think I can explain the varying responses. Typically, guests who spend $250-$300 per night are used to a more corporatized ambiance like more staff, the latest in-room electronics, and obsessive maintenance inside and out. However, the manor is run by a husband and wife team with a small core of support staff which may not be what every affluent traveler is looking for. Yet, what they do offer is a more personal touch, which includes things like fresh baked cookies at turn down.
