Yes, the decor is a bit "Changing Rooms" / amateurish but it's all done with friendly enthusiasm. Like other reviewers, I had trouble getting hot water from the shower at times and found the strange soft top mattress so uncomfortable that I had to take the bed apart in the end to get any sleep.The pre-dinner loitering with a drink went awry as no one appeared to take any drink orders. But the really sad thing was the much vaunted cooking at dinner. One course (not a pudding) was almost perfect -- except that it was drenched in a honey sauce of overpowering and cloying sweetness. The other was a sad combination of good ingredients that just didn't really work together. The waiting staff in the dining room are also a bit 'simple' and got orders mixed up. The breakfast was excellent and -- despite the whining above -- I would recommend it. The house itself is beautiful, the garden is a lovely retreat and the owners are engaging.
