Thank you so much for your kind words regarding our hotel. We strive to provide an excellent experience for all of our guests. We are working hard to correct and improve the functionality of the kitchen in our attached Bar and Kitchen. We have spent some time over the last week adjusting the layout and locating new equipment that will help us better handle our traffic flow. We hope to see you again!
