Had a few nights here at Christmas. We'd dined here previously, so knew the food was good. There's a bar, with separate restaurant / comfy sofas at the other side. The food is varied and very good throughout the menu.
The good-sized room was very comfortable, with everything you need in there, including a large bed. If there was a downside, it was the dated, but clean bathroom, which was just about functional, but no more. Given the stays aren't exactly cheap, this really needs addressing.
As our room was at end of the building, there was minimal noise from the busy downstairs. And though we were on the 'main street', we weren't bothered by excess traffic either.
There is a separate entrance for guests, with a part-time reception - there's not enough trade for someone to be on hand 24/7. But, the very pleasant staff are easy enough to find if you need something.
The place in general is vibrant, with a good mix of customers, and despite it being in a 'village', there were no 'idiots' to spoil things.
We chose this place due to its location for where we wanted to be, and will likely return at some point, as there's no need looking for anywhere else.
