We went here for lunch on Sunday the 16th December. We had lunch in the brasserie and I have made a separate review for this on their Brasserie site. Our first impression on arrival was that it looked a fantastic building and had been lovingly restored. Was surprised that the entrance was through a modern glass fronted door that looked a bit out of character for being next to the castle part. When you go in your not entering a lavish reception area . The reception desk is very small and you could quite easily walk past it. I think this may be a problem in high season with tourists checking in and out. The lounge area was very nice and well furnished and decorated for the festive season. This room would have benefited a real log fire or wood burning stove. There was a nice open fireplace which was set with logs but this was not lit on a cold winters day.. I heard the problem for no fires was that previous owners had blocked up all the chimneys.This was such a shame as this would have been welcoming and warm. This place seems to have been restored to a high standard with beautiful fixtures and fittings. They are still working to finish the main restaurant and spa area. Views from the dining room are a delight and I think this hotel will without a doubt be heading towards a five star rating especially if they get the best of chefs.
