We stayed for two nights and upgraded to a deluxe room which was lovely and very roomy.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was superb with fresh baked bread and a good variety of hot and cold options, don't miss out on the smoked (on site) salmon and scrambled eggs it's a real delight.
We dined in the hotel on both nights once with the 5 course taster menu and then the a la carte. Both meals were fantastic, we honestly could not fault anything, the helpings were plentiful and the quality was spot on. The restaurant staff were brilliant and genuinely seemed to enjoy their work, not something you often come across in my experience.
The only reservation we would have is that although we were very fortunate to have beautiful weather during our stay it did make the restaurant very hot in the evening so much so that we dined outside on the second night. Perhaps some more ceiling fans would make it more comfortable inside.
