Looking at the pictures here and on their site I think we must have had their smallest double room! It was only just about large enough for a double bed with the smallest bathroom I've ever seen - the doorway is only just two feet wide and you have to enter, stand against the loo and then close the door in order to reach the shower! A sloping ceiling means gentlemen must always use the loo seated!!! It would have caused a larger person a great deal of discomfort. The towel rail is inconveniently outside in the bedroom. The basin is also in the bedroom. It is sunk into a worksurface which has a microwave and tea tray on it and fridge underneath which makes the basin feel like a kitchen sink. Apart from small bedside tables there's no free surface to put anything down on. There are coat hooks available, but the wardrobe is only half height so you can't hang longer length clothes in it. White curtains meant we woke as soon as it got light.
The room was spotlessly clean and very well equipped with excellent bed linen. A lot of thought has been put into providing anything you might need, with many unusually considerate touches. It was very peaceful and quiet. Breakfast in the lovely courtyard garden was well cooked and really delicious with excellent service. Our hostess was friendly and charming.
Would I stay again? Probably, but definitely not in the same room!!
