          We are looking to stay at Governor's next year. In England the beautiful Southern veranda is a major attraction and we want to be sure we book a room with direct private access. Which rooms are best and what is the difference between 'porch' and 'veranda ' at Governor's ? Any other room information would be great. Thank you
