Firstly, I would like to give some critique: rooms arent like on pics,no toiletpaper,no cups, no milk, no plug next to mirror, dirty ceilling,moldy vent in bathroom which by the way is stupidly small for boutique, horrible hard towels,working and making noise in unfinnished room, flooding in room? and I can go on. Our stay was pleasant dispite all above, but if you are charging that kind of money make sure off detail etc.
