We stayed here in July for 5 nights. The room we had overlooked the estuary and was very nice although quite small.
The gardens were lovely was a bit disappointed with the laid back attitude and presentation of the staff. They were friendly to a point but they need to take some lessons in presentation. They all looked like they'd gotten dressed in a hurry or would rather have been somewhere else. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss. Some days very quick then other days slower than a wet week and for no apparent reason. And they have a seemingly pointless system of asking you what you want for breakfast the minute you check in, then paying no attention to your request when you do go in for breakfast.
A good selection of local beers and wine but the bar area really needs a rethink. There are too many eating tables in there so if you just wanted to go for a drink with a group there are really only a few couches right in the middle of the room you could use. It would be better if they moved the diners out to the restaurant completely and leave the bar to social groups having a drink.
Overall it's not bad. It's in a lovely spot but I think it's over-priced and they need to lift their game a bit, given that the summer season is so short. They could do so much more with the place.
