I had high expectations for this hotel given that it had a 3 Michelin star restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is charming. The decoration is a bit eclectic with a mix of traditional (the drawing rooms) and modern (the bar area). The spa is functional, but on the small side. The sauna and swimming pools felt a bit cramped.
We had a superior room was was large and comfortable, particularly the bathroom. It was at the back of the hotel overlooking the garden so it was very peaceful and quiet. Reading some other comments, it looks like it's worth requesting a room towards the back to avoid any street noise.
The service was excellent from the moment we arrived to the time we departed. The staff was professional and very friendly. Our meal was excellent. We were served an aperitif and amuse-bouche in the bar area followed by dinner in the restaurant. I would recommend ordering the menu vs. a la carte which tends to be more expensive. The menu also gives you the option to taste various dishes.
The hotel and restaurant are by no means cheap, but keeping in mind that it is meant to be a luxury "country inn" I think that overall the place delivers.
