Very friendly, efficient, well trained staff. Lovely setting and wonderfully cared for gardens. So much was made of a small garden area. SUPER comfy room with many, many lovely complimentary extras - we did not take advantage of them all but they were there! Promises were kept regarding service, and when I ordered a specifically itemised meal - I got it - not many establishments manage that! Check out was efficient, friendly and effective! It was lovely to have an outside drinks only area and a sail canvass outside eating area as the weather was humid.
We appreciated the idea of a limited menu but wished for a pasta option that was not there/ or a slightly wider otherwise sensibly limited menu. The outside area would have benefited if tables were moved for cleaning of the lovely patio - inside was spotless to perfection.
Extremely friendly staff. Super service and lovely and clean room. Breakfast was delicious too.
That I was only staying 1 night.
Didn’t like lack of space in the bedroom. Basin too small. No shelf in the bathroom. No plug near a mirror.
Fab. More like a 4 star boutique hotel than a 3 star. Lovely room. Great food. Free fast WiFi. Friendly helpful staff. What more could you need?
The staff were excellent through our stay
