First impressions count and we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes and made to feel as though we were visiting old friends in their home, rather than arriving at a hotel. Our room didn't disappoint - a lovely garden view, spotlessly clean, a great bathroom (and well lit - well done!), a comfy bed and sherry thrown in. We chose to eat in the hotel (the only alternatives being a drive away) and were quickly salivating at what looked a superb menu. Unfortunately the food, whilst ok, didn't live up to our expectations - the veg was just that: veg - plain carrots, plain beans ....no seasonings, no knob of butter. The fish again whilst very pleasant could have benefited from something to zuzz it up a little ....a crispy skin, a grind of salt or pepper even. ,,,the scallop starter too was a little bland. There was nothing obviously wrong, but got the feeling that there was nothing fabulously special. Breakfast however was a much better affair, with gorgeous bacon, and a super fresh fruit salad amongst the offerings to set us on our way.
