Recently stayed one night en route home, taking advantage of a voucher for a free nights stay. Chose the hotel as the pictures looked lovely and it stated it was child friendly as we had our 2 year old son with us. We arrived and were surprised at how secluded it actually is....it is in the middle of nowhere. Our room was OK...view not great, but clean enough. We had read the reviews on the restaurant and fancied trying it. We were put off however as the hotel guidebook in our room stated that 'children under 7 were not encouraged to be in the restaurant unless they were especially well behaved'....I found this rather off putting and don't know any parent who could guarantee such a thing! Child friendly? I think not. We therefore dined in the nearest village in another hotel that welcomed kids. The hotel was very peaceful, there was virtually no noise or atmosphere, I would suggest it is suitable for people wanting to have total peace and quiet. We did not stay for breakfast as if my son wasn't welcome at dinner, we would take our custom elsewhere. I wouldn't return personally but again if seclusion and quiet is your thing, go for it.
