Many of our 103, beautifully appointed rooms feature original antiques, with all of the comforts of home. In addition to the charming main hotel, we offer villas with kitchenettes overlooking the 10th fairway. History lives here, to be sure, but this is the 21st Century. We offer all the comforts a modern golfer, business traveler and families require; including an outdoor pool, game room with pool table, foosball and ping pong, four lighted tennis courts, a well-stocked lounge and fine dining.
