I have been here several times over the years and we generally visit as a treat on special occasions which is exactly what we did for my mother's 80th birthday. I live abroad and so, coming back was a bit of a treat for me too although this visit was only for lunch. I didn't stay. It was everything we wanted it to be and a little bit more. The warmth of the welcome alone, makes you feel immediately at home. The hotel is beautifully appointed and clearly cared for. Susan Webb is the consummate hostess working the room serenely and efficiently and with really wonderful sincere charm.
We ate handsomely from the stunningly good canapés, right through to the last piece of cheese by way of perfectly executed asparagus, lambs kidneys, and steak. It was all sublime. The wine list is impressive and there are wines to suit every taste and pocket. We had an excellent Gruner Veltliner and a spanking good Crozes Hermitage. To top all of this, when shown to the table from the drawing room, a birthday card and a small gift were sitting at my mother's place awaiting her. Such a charming and personal touch which was very much appreciated.
Of course all of this comes at a price but honestly, it is worth every penny. There is nothing to match this in the area and it has a charm all of its own. Bryan and Susan Webb really are a class act and I take my hat off to their slick professionalism. Can't recommend the place highly enough.
