The pool looked inviting and the far eastern influences are everywhere.
The hotel has been owned by the same people for 40 years and they have kept the antique furniture and the old fashioned charm . The reception is one of the prettiest I have seen.It has a wonderful fireplace, and a very helpful chap who even appeared when we were trying to take a photo outside the hotel, to take the picture.
The rooms are all different, we had a ground floor double room which wasn't large, a bit chintzy and had a huge bathroom 1970's style with a corner bath.everything was clean and monogrammed.
Our brothers had a twin room on the second floor of the building adjacent to the main hotel, their room had been renovated with a bathroom and walk in shower.
The stairs were very steep and two floors up which wasn't easy for the older members of our group.
You might want to check your rooms if you have any special needs.There wasn't any lifts.
The breakfast was €15 each, very nice with cold meats,cheese,croissants,yogurts etc
May have gone into the town and had a breakfast there rather than spend €30 but we thought it was included in our room rate.
The man at breakfast was very accommodating and spoke several different breakfasting languages.
The gardens are lovely, there is a spa but you had to pay €40 as they had to heat it...not sure if that's each! Quite expensive.
The car parking is a plus point although there were a lot of car parks in town, the convenience of a short walk to the restaurants and no worry of taxi's was a bonus.
All in all a recommended hotel if you like antiques and pale pink corner baths, but you could be lucky and get a refurbished room with monogrammed chintz and a wet room.
