Superbly decorated with a beautiful garden and outside area opposite a very old church, this pub restaurant with chalet accommodation is very well cared for.
We did not eat evening meal because we went to see family but we used the bar area which was lovely. Other guests told us the meals were very good and we thought breakfast was excellent with fresh local produce very well presented.
One minor point was that the bar area was hoovered whilst we are breakfast. It was a little intrusive.
We would like an earlier check in and later check out but have seen the explanation on the website. We also think the wifi needs a boost in the end deluxe chalet.
Our room was spotless and every credit should go to the cleaner. The shower was very strong indeed. I wish I had it!
In terms of price I'd say the room was at the top end for its size although it was very nicely decorated.
We would stay again.
