Superb from start to finish. All of our food was exquisite. Beautifully presented and delicious. The service was excellent including the emails confirming our booking and requests. Just over £100 for three courses drinks and liqueurs. Worth every penny.

Thanks for your question - the hotel opens from 6am and breakfast is served 7:30 - 9:30am (8:00 - 10:00am Sunday) and we are more than happy to offer continental breakfast before this time on request.
