This is an attractive country hotel set on a hillside with long views. The hotel itself is a very inviting converted country home. We stayed in the main building, not the somewhat larger annex. Our room was clean and comfortable and reasonably sized. It was called 'cozy comfort.' There are larger rooms, some with long views. The advantage of being...

My wife treated me to a 2 night break to celebrate my 70th birthday. I already knew the Horn by reputation and it certainly did not disappoint. Our room (cosy) was delightful complete with balcony with stunning views, well stocked mini bar and bathrobes. Dinner on both nights was first class. As somebody who had spent many years as a...

We booked an overnight stay here online and opted for the offer which included welcome cake, pre dinner drink, room and breakfast.
