Allerton House at Central Park

$$$$
3 reviews
Her4261: "Allerton House at Central Park was a beautiful facility with friendly staff. The food was very good, restaurant-style, and had good choices. The rooms were very small. We had a problem with the medical assessments, and I don't believe the staff thoroughly investigated my father's medical history. The cost was in the middle range. The place is very well designed, but the parking is limited."
