The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was lovely with a four poster bed, it was a shame that the mattress was not very comfortable at all - in a way glad that we only stayed for one night. We were down for breakfast at 9 and there was hardly anything left. The spa treatments were lovely tho.

A small hotel,only 19 rooms. We were given a lovely room, large bathroom with free-standing bath and large walk in shower. the room had a settee, lovely views, homemade cookies, plus apples and sweets. Dinner was excellent, the lounge is well decorated, quality furniture. Very relaxing. Would definitely stay again.

Having expected big things from this place with its sister hotels and experiences this really did not deliver and is not in the same league.
