Spent two nights here. Room a little cramped but nicely presented. Food pretty good but a bit expensive for what it was - limited fixed menus and fairly standard dishes. Restaurant had bags of character. Location is very pretty. Service distictly unfriendly, surly, unsmiling, almost resentful. At check in, it took them two goes to validate our booking, though it was fine. At dinner we were made to wait to be shown to a table and then waited 15 minutes to get even the menu. The starters (from the fixed menu) took 45 minutes. On the next night they didnt offer us the wine list, and then when we eventually ordered, they forgot. On checking out they tried to overcharge for breakfasts we had not taken, despite being asked each day whether we wanted breakfast.
