Glorious setting and lovely view from both Sitting room and Restaurant. A most comfortable and classy set up. Food was really wonderful and the chefs excelled themselves at every meal. The wine list was comprehensive and varied.
The seafood was truly wonderful and the cooked oysters with fennel made my husband particularly happy. Breakfasts were outstanding both in terms of variety and quality - the chef did a wonderful rhubarb compote.
In the afternoon with a pot of tea we got a very moist whisky fruitcake - I must say, I would have loved the recipe.
You could not be disappointed with a stay here.
