This was a real high point for me as I have often seen this art in books and to actually see such beautiful depictions of it in person was thrilling and wonderful.

    We had an excellent stay here and would definitely recommend. Was able to prepay online and was good value, on arrival staff were friendly and helpful, room was spotless and pleasant, the meal in the restaurant very good, and was only spoilt by England losing the 4th ODI, but it was good watching it in the bar with everyone else!
