I stayed here the week before Christmas 2007.
Excellent location - right in the centre of the village which is beautiful at any time of year. But other than that, not great.
There were some refurbishments going on, and Christmas parties taking place. Noisy function room, corridors smelling of paint and distracted staff didnt make for a particularly relaxing stay. Trying to get a drink in the bar meant going through to reception where they went off to look for the bar staff rather than just serving.
I'm sure things are much better here in the summer season.
