We've had a lovely 2 nights here. Comfortable and clean room, pretty grounds and views, friendly and attentive staff, and the most gorgeous food. Breakfast and dinner are both really excellent. Lovely flavours, cooked beautifully, and lots of different components to each dish. We would definitely come back.
