This is a lovely place that is not being well-managed. We had a happy weekend here, great facilities, good food and ideal location.
But it clearly isn't the place it once was. Tired furnishings, leaking shower with cracked ceiling, dirty carpet together with the cobwebs in corners and occasionally dirty crockery give the impression that they are not on top of their game. It isn't filthy, but it certainly isn't the luxury they promise.
The cleaning staff are friendly. The kitchen staff who sit around outside your cottage are dour, having a fag and peering at their mobiles. The waitresses are pretty (but know it). The village peaceful. It's a great place to come but make sure you don't pay their asking price if you have an eye for a fair deal or you'll feel ripped off. I didn't.
