Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mountain Magic We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Convent. Great accommodation for two couples with plenty of space and lovely and warm on cold July nights. Kitchen is fantastic and we had a great night in sitting around the huge island bench. Rooms were nicely appointed and beds were great. Ensuite was good and 2nd bathroom was adequate although both were not as clean as they should have been. Dark hair everwhere requiring us to wipe surfaces and floors. A 4th stool in the kitchen would be great as well. Maybe some more current dvds or even netflix and some board games would perfect an already good stayz! Will return when its warmer to enjoy rear terrace and gardens! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property Lovely grounds and property. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in Old Chapel and will definitely be back again. Property had everything you could need and the location is super convenient. Highly recommend Silk Brasserie for dinner, just a short walk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good but take your own bath sheets! The property was lovely and beautifully turned out. I would recommend it completely. The only negative comments would be the extra cleaning charge of $30 for the use of the second bathroom. I thought this was un-necessary for a two night stay. It would be fairer just to include it in the total price. The towels in the additional bathroom were small and poor quality. My husband and I, in our late 60's, had to be careful negotiating our trips there and back across the living room and into the hall. A couple of nice bath sheets would have been a comforting extra. Other than that a very nice stay.
